Freud Summary

Freud: A Life for Our Time by Peter Gay

"A magisterial contribution to the history of ideas. A fresh, illuminating perspective on one of the pivotal figures of our time." -J. Anthony Lukas

"[This] remarkable biography... briskly traces the story of Freud's life and education, deftly weaving the familiar narrative with a style that makes it seem fresh and lively." -Chicago Tribune

Freud Reviews

"Intelligent and wholly absorbing.... Judicious, original biography, scrupulously grounded in close readings of [Freud's] work." -- Michiko Kakutani - New York Times
"Brilliant.... A dazzling performance.... Gay's ability to integrate into a coherent whole the vast published and unpublished literature on Freud including hundreds of previously unknown or inaccessible letters is awesome.... A work of art." -- Jonathan Sharp - San Francisco Examiner-Chronicle
"Elegant... puts Freud's life into the context of his time while attempting to explain him for readers who cannot escape his shadow. In Gay's hands, the Olympian figure is almost within mortal reach." -- Michael Skube - Raleigh News and Observer
