Soon after their first meeting in 1908, Sigmund Freud’s future biographer, Ernest Jones, initiated a correspondence with the founder of psychoanalysis that would continue until Freud’s death in London in 1939. This volume makes available from British and American archives nearly seven hundred previously unpublished letters, postcards, and telegrams from the three-decade correspondence between Freud and his admiring younger colleague.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Freud and Jones put psychoanalysis on the map; a feat neither could have performed alone. While the present volume adds to our knowledge of psychoanalysis’s strange history, its real value lies elsewhere. It documents the steps whereby two starkly dissimilar but equally driven men joined forces and changed the world. - Liam Hudson, Times Literary Supplement

What makes these 671 items of singular interest—apart from their intrinsic intellectual vividness and historical importance—is that four-fifths of them are in English… Freud’s communications to Jones are written in an absolutely clear, fluent, fascinating, idiosyncratic and sometimes charmingly imperfect English… The forcefulness, intense personal presence and feeling of momentousness and durable commitment to matters of surpassing historical significance are perceptible, indeed palpitant, in every communication, right down to the occasional postcard. - Steven Marcus, New York Newsday
