Review by:
Ellen R. Peyser

The second volume of The Correspondence of Sigmund Freud and Sándor Ferenczi, with an excellent Introduction by Axel Hoffer, gives us an intimate and moving glimpse of the relationship between Ferenczi and Freud during the years that span Ferenczi's analysis with Freud. Their consistent and very personal exchange, one which never faltered for more than a month or so over the years between 1914 and 1919, offers a rich personal and historical context in which to better understand each man and his impact on the other. At the same time, the influence of World War I on the development of psychoanalysis and its institutions and on the daily lives of its founders is brought before us in a very personal way. During the difficult years of the war, Ferenczi provided Freud with companionship and intellectual support. More practically, he sent him patients and regular shipments of food and helped him find places to summer and to work.
