Tip: To see translations of Freud SE or GW…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

When you hover your mouse over a paragraph of the Standard Edition (SE) long enough, the corresponding text from Gesammelte Werke slides from the bottom of the PEP-Web window, and vice versa.

If the slide up window bothers you, you can turn it off by checking the box “Turn off Translations” in the slide-up.  But if you’ve turned it off, how do you turn it back on?  The option to turn off the translations only is effective for the current session (it uses a stored cookie in your browser).  So the easiest way to turn it back on again is to close your browser (all open windows), and reopen it.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Karl Abraham


28 May 1917

Dear Professor,

So, your long silence was due to postal delays. Your letter of the 20th arrived here yesterday. I was pleased to learn from it that you and all your family are well and especially wish you at this moment continued good news from your warrior on the Isonzo. Many thanks for all your news. I very much regret that there is no prospect of a meeting yet.

The Zeitschrift arrived at the same time as your letter; a particularly good and substantial number—amazingly good for wartime! I can make no comment on your paper,1 except to agree with it. I was especially pleased with Ferenczi's essay.2 I held a talk here on the same theme more than a year ago which coincides in every detail with what he writes. I may soon write a short supplementary paper, since it might be possible to add some important points that I have recently come to understand. The variety of his contributions to the last issue3 proves to me that Ferenczi is well on the way to recovery. I shall write to him one of these days. It is a good thing in these difficult times that Sachs, with his characteristic devotion, can dedicate himself to the journals. Who knows what would otherwise have become of them.

There is not much new to say about us. We shall spend the summer holidays, which begin on 21 July, in Nidden on the Kurian spit of land, a little holiday resort that we already know and that offers a combination of the Baltic and a very beautiful forest. Before that I am going to Bremen for a few days, as my mother, who will soon be 70, is not well.
