Twain and Freud on the Human Race: Parallels on Personality, Politics and Religion

By Kupersmith, Abraham

Jefferson, NC: McFarland & Company, Inc., 2009. AUTHOR SIGNED. 2009 paperback edition. NEAR FINE. A clean, crisp, well-bound copy; the only marking is the author's inscription on the half-title page, "For Dr. Hermon / Thanks for your help / Abraham Kupersmith". Cover edges lightly rubbed; small bump to bottom corner of about 8 text leaves, otherwise a fine copy. Kupersmith explores the parallels and interweavings of psychological thought between Twain and Freud. Twain spent time in late-nineteenth century Vienna (where he and Freud once met). European opinions of the time influenced Twain's thinking (as evidenced in his 1906 "What is Man?") and Twain's writings influenced Freud. 5-7/8 x 9"; x + 205 pages.. Signed by Author. Soft Cover. Near Fine.
