Product description

Synopsis

Composed while the distinguished German judge Daniel Schreber was confined to a psychiatric hospital and published at the outset of the twentieth century, Memoirs of My Nervous Illness has fascinated and haunted its many readers, including Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, Elias Canetti, and Dilles Deleuze, and has established itself as a key text for students of psychology and modern social and cultural history. As Rosemary Dinnage says in her introduction to this new edition, Schreber wrote 'an account of what it is to be forsaken by everything familiar and real, and of the delusionary world that gets invented in their place'. His book is perhaps the most revealing dispatch ever received from the far side of madness.

About the Author

Daniel Paul Schreber (1842-1911) was the son of the preeminent nineteenth-century German medical authority on child-rearing. Before his mental collapse, he served as the chief justice of the supreme court of the state of Saxony.
