The Unconscious knows no "No"

We will examine some well-known texts with Jewish/Holocaust/ Ethical themes. Our aim is to demonstrate how a psychoanalytic reading of this work can enrich our understanding.


The psychoanalyst and the author of literature are concerned with ‘the Unconscious’. Both stimulate us to listen to ‘the music behind the words’ and/or ‘to read between the lines’. We will examine some well-known texts with Jewish/Holocaust/ Ethical themes. Our aim is to demonstrate how a psychoanalytic reading of this work can enrich our understanding and how works of fiction can also enhance our ‘people skills’. With the help of Shakespeare and George Eliot the first introductory meeting will illustrate the Pre- Freudian Unconscious. Each subsequent meeting will address and encourage discussion of one of the texts below.

• The Sunflower (1976) by Simon Wiesenthal
• Latecomers (1988) by Anita Brookner
• Daniel Deronda (1876) by George Eliot
• The Little Prince (1942) by Antoine De Saint Exupery
• Civilisation and its Discontents (1930) by Sigmund Freud
