Dora Overview

Transcending categories of genre, Dora: An Analysis of a Case of Hysteria by Sigmund Freud is a unique psycho-historical case study of his treatment of an 18-year-old Austrian girl with hysteria named "Dora." An example of nineteenth century psychoanalytic treatment, the case study is a reconstruction of Dora's circumstances and behavior, framed within the process of dream interpretation and the sexual origins of neuroses. The case study was terminated before Dora's hysteria was successfully treated, but nonetheless Freud's account offers an interesting look at the unconscious, complex family relationships, and repressed sexuality.
