KIRKUS REVIEW

Again Dr. Reik brings his readers a resounding depth probe circling from self to experience to self. His collection of ruminations here includes a recall of Freud as he knew him and grew through him in thirty years of association; letters from Freud and criticisms of each others' work in particular instances; an intimate recall of Reik's relation to his first wife Ella in connection with the impact of the Goethe-Friedericke theme; the nature of the gift of psychological observation; psychoanalytic experience in life, literature and music. As in his other books, his fertile explorations of self and the outer world, including Shakespeare, France and numerous other sources, provide insights for the unflagging initiate.
