Letters from Sigmund Freud to Joan Riviere (1921–1939)

Athol Hughes


A series of letters that Freud wrote to Joan Riviere in the period from 12. 8. 1921 to 22. 1. 1939 has been transcribed, translated and published here for the first time. They were given by Joan Riviere to the Sigmund Freud Archives and deposited in the Library of Congress in Washington where access to them had been restricted. Through the efforts of Dr Harold Blum, the present Executive Director of the Freud Archives, the restriction was lifted.

The letters concern arrangements that Freud made for his analysis of Joan Riviere; his (and her) relationship to Ernest Jones; the translation into English and the publication of his works in England. They also concern Freud's reaction to the reception in England of Anna Freud's book

on The Technique of Child Analysis(1927) and his view of Melanie Klein's approach to the theory and practice of child analysis.
