Psychoanalytic Review. LIII, 1966: The Golem: Significance of the Legend. Earl P. Petrus. Pp. 63-68.

The Golem, a clay monster, was originally a magical protection against the accusation that the Jews practiced ritual murder. It became useful in many ways but provided only limited and temporary relief from anxiety. The author neglects to mention the final turn of the Golem myth that is similar to the Frankenstein story to which he refers. In the end the monster turns against its maker in a fight to the finish.
