[SEI167a13]The theme of this paper has now become so familiar that it is difficult to realize the astonishment and indignation which it aroused on its first publication. The three character-traits which are here associated with anal erotism, had, as we learn from Ernest Jones (1955, 331-2), already been mentioned by Freud in a letter to Jung of October 27, 1906. He had also mentioned them in some remarks to the Vienna Psycho-Analytical Society on March 6, 1907. (See the Minutes, 1.) He had associated money and miserliness with faeces in a letter to Fliess of December 22, 1897, (Freud, 1950a, Letter 79). The paper was no doubt partly stimulated by the analysis of the ‘Rat Man(1909d), which had been concluded shortly before, though the special connection between anal erotism and obsessional neurosis was only brought out some years later, in ‘The Disposition to Obsessional Neurosis(1913i).
