PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up.  But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on?  The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser).  So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

G. Ferrari Hardoy

In this paper the author presents a formulation of Balzac's character based on Abraham's theory of the development of melancholia from the conflicts surrounding orality. She feels that Balzac's personality is especially amenable to such an analysis because of his identification with the characters in his novels. However, she adduces Balzac's 'oral character' from historical facts: he suffered an early oral frustration and was rejected by his mother at the age of four when she shipped him off to school and saw him there but seldom until he was fourteen. He was demanding, hostile and overdependent. He drank and ate excessively, and exhibited a marked loquacity and a thirst for knowledge. According to the author, an anal trend was also indicated by his love of collecting and his occasional avarice.
