An illuminating visual guide to the birth of psychoanalysis.

Hysteria is a graphic novel account of the first steps, errors and frustrations of Sigmund Freud’s career, which would lead to the foundation of a revolutionary new clinical therapy: psychoanalysis.

“Dark, delightful and deep, this brilliant graphic novel not only brings Freud’s case history to life but also raises crucial questions about contemporary approaches to human suffering. An inspiring and thought-provoking book.” – Darian Leader

The book traces Freud’s early training in neurological research and medicine; the crucial turning-point of his studies with Jean-Martin Charcot at La Salpêtrière; and his establishment of a therapeutic practice in Vienna. Perfectly matching text and illustrations,
Hysteria recounts Freud’s interest in his colleague Josef Breuer’s ‘Anna O’ case study, as well as giving an account of his own case histories of hysteria, particularly the treatment of Fräulein Elisabeth von R.

The studies brought to life in this authoritative, beautifully illustrated graphic novel are collected in Freud and Breuer’s co-authored
Studies in Hysteria, which marked the birth of psychoanalysis.
