Joel Gonchar

Felix Deutsch's 1957 paper, "A Footnote to Freud's 'Fragment of an Analysis of a Case of Hysteria'," is considered from the point of view of its being narrative, rather than historical, as it has been considered by many. Thompson believes that both "Footnote" and the case history are influenced by narrative perspective. She especially examines the themes in Deutsch's paper which seem to reflect those that permeate Freud's text—knowledge, secrets, and revelations. She cites Deutsch's text to show how "Footnote" includes not only Dora as a character, but also Freud and Deutsch, whose relationship is played out in the metaphor of knowledge. Thompson's study of the "Footnote" raises the question of the validity of case reports in general and examines their intertextuality—the way the previous text exerts an influence on the present text—as well as the context in which a report is written. In the case of "Footnote," this would include Deutsch's identification, interaction, and competition with Freud.
