Introducing Freud : A Graphic Guide to the Father of Psychoanalysis by Richard Appignanesi and Oscar Zarate
Oooh I wonder if you present in-depth ideas in a graphic novel format, that they become more easily understood and accessible?
It tells the story of Freud's life from birth, through studying and to final professional recognition. There are examples of famous case studies for instance 'Anna O' and also 'The Rat Man' included. His theories are described in clear detailed excerpts.
Richard Appignanesi, Canadian writer, author of Introducing Freud & Manga Shakespeare for young adults.
WE should totally write a book together in 1992 filled with surreal art and theoretical definitions. Then in 2013 re-publish it under a new title for no obvious reason. It may well demystify complex ideas with a fun approach in the eyes of Matrix students in 2019.
Oscar Zarate, Argentinian Architect turned Illustrator,influenced by art,film & politics.
Mr Z's illustrations are a mixture of classical art, realism & spiky sketches in black and white. Some evocative of renaissance art , working together well with the mythological & erotic nature of Freud's theories.
Mr A explains Freud's work in a witty , informative way including "The Unconscious", "Transference & Counter transference", & " The model of the mind"
I see you as a father figure because you said .... I am feeling paternal emotions towards you as you reacted to ...
Sigmund Freud walks into a bar, sits down and orders a drink . He looks over to the stage and Mozart comes out and starts going crazy on a keyboard. Freud downs his drink, flips a few tables and runs out angrily. Mozart looks at the barman and asks, "What was that about?" The barman replies. "Pianist envy."
I reckon that this novel managed to be entertaining, bursting with information and awesome art, shame we cant reference Mr Z's work
