Psychoanalytic Review. L, 1963: Sartre, Genêt, and Freud. Benjamin Nelson. Pp. 505-521.

By inserting Freud into this discussion Nelson tries to give substance to a very tenuous thesis: 1, that the unidentified antagonist of the author (Sartre) of 'Saint Genêt' is Freud, and 2, that the work which cries out to be considered with 'Saint Genêt' is Freud's study of Schreber. The author assumes that Sartre should have an understanding of homosexuality based on the Schreber case that can be used in understanding the homosexuality of Genêt. He notes that not once in Sartre's torrent of words does he mention Freud or Freud's writings, and that Sartre is as little interested in the theory of the unconscious as he is in the roots of homosexuality. The same can be said of Genêt; hence the abstracter asks why there should be any effort to compare the two with Freud.
