»Hoffmann’s story is a timeless nightmare, and you feel that Freud could not have begun his examination of the human subconscious without him (we should remember that Freud was a first-rate reader, and those who object to his case histories ought perhaps to look at them again, as stories). Hoffmann is still influential, as both a literary and a psychological innovator – it is remarkable that this story is approaching its 200th anniversary – and this volume serves as an excellent introduction.«
