Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

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

International Journal of Psychoanalysis. XLII, 1961: The Biographer and Psychoanalysis. Leon Edel. Pp. 458-466.

In a tribute to the memory of Edward Hitschmann, who was interested in biography and applied psychoanalysis, the author, a literary historian, discusses biography and psychoanalysis. He describes the means and goals of the two disciplines and expresses personal horror at the misapplied psychoanalysis used in current literary journals where psychoanalytic language and ideas distract and confuse rather than truly portray. He quotes from Jones's biography of Freud to illustrate how biography ought not to be written; when the literary biographer borrows from the shorthand of psychoanalysis it is his duty to decipher and translate it. Psychoanalytic language is not the language of the people or of literature or literary criticism.
