American Imago, XXXVII. 1980: Freud on Bismarck. Hanns Sachs' Interpretation of a Dream. Jacques Szaluta. Pp. 215-244.

George G. Fishman

The Interpretation of Dreams includes Hanns Sachs's analysis of one of Bismarck's dreams. Sachs was uncritically admiring of the man who bore the nickname, "Iron Chancellor." Freud accepted this cursory dream analysis even though it was so limited by the analyst's admiration for his subject. Szaluta mentions possible reasons for Freud's collusion with Sachs's biased perception. He shows convincingly why Bismarck was to become a hero for Freud in the manner of Napoleon, Hannibal, Cromwell, and Garibaldi. Humble origins, rebelliousness, strength, pro-Semitism, and anti-Catholicism were all prominent features of Freud's heroes. Bismarck's embodiment of many of these qualities may have hampered Freud's ability to see or remark upon the statesman's ruthless narcissism.
