This chapter examines the case study of Frau Emmy. Freud writes: “[I] can give no better advice to anyone interested in the development of catharsis into psycho-analysis than to begin with Studies on Hysteria and thus follow the path which I myself have trodden” (1895, p. xxxi). In this way we shall to some extent redress the oblivion that has fallen upon hysterical women, the wet nurses of psychoanalysis.
