  1. 1. 219: Dora’s First Dream as Wish-Fulfillment <ul><li>The child decided to fly with her father; in reality she fled to her father because she was afraid of the man who was pursuing her; she summoned up an infantile affection for her father so that it might protect her against her present affection for a stranger. </li></ul><ul><li>Her father was himself partly responsible for her present danger, for he had once handed him over to this strange man in the interest of his own love-affair. </li></ul>
  2. 2. 219: Dora’s First Dream as Wish-Fulfillment <ul><li>And how much better it had been when that same father of hers had loved no-one more than her, and had exerted all his strength to save her from the dangers that had threatened her! </li></ul><ul><li>The infantile, and now unconscious, wish to put her father in the strange man’s place had the potency necessary for the formation of the dream. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Dora’s Second Dream <ul><li>I was walking about in a town I did not know. I saw streets and stairs which were strange to me. </li></ul><ul><li>Then I came into a house where I lived, went to my room, </li></ul><ul><li>and found a letter from Mother lying there. She wrote saying that as I had left without my parents’ knowledge </li></ul><ul><li>she had not wished to write to me to say that Father was ill. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Now he is dead, </li></ul><ul><li>and if you like [?] you can come.” </li></ul>
  4. 4. Dora’s Second Dream <ul><li>I then went to the station (“Bahnhof”) </li></ul><ul><li>and asked about a hundred times: “Where is the station?” </li></ul><ul><li>I always got the answer: “Five minutes.” </li></ul><ul><li>I then saw a thick wood before me which I went into, </li></ul><ul><li>and there I asked a man whom I met. He said to me: “Two and a half hours more.” </li></ul>
  5. 5. Dora’s Second Dream <ul><li>He offered to accompany me. But I refused and went alone. </li></ul><ul><li>I saw the station in front of me and could not reach it. At the same time I had the usual feeling of anxiety that one has in dreams when one cannot move forward. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Then I was at home. </li></ul><ul><li>I must have been traveling in the meantime, but I know nothing about that. </li></ul><ul><li>I walked into the porter's lodge, and inquired for our flat. </li></ul><ul><li>The maidservant opened the door to me and replied that Mother and the others were already at the cemetery. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>Then I was at home. I must have been traveling in the meantime, but I know nothing about that. I walked into the porter's lodge, and inquired for our flat. </li></ul><ul><li>I saw myself particularly distinctly going up the stairs. </li></ul><ul><li>I went calmly to my room, and began reading a big book that lay on my writing-table. </li></ul><ul><li>The maidservant opened the door to me and replied that Mother and the others were already at the cemetery. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Dora at L ____ <ul><li>“ a day or two” before the scene by the lake: the governess makes her revelation to Dora </li></ul><ul><li>scene by the lake: Herr K. says “you know I get nothing out of my wife…”; Dora slaps him, runs off </li></ul><ul><li>but still stays at L__, with the K’s, for 4 or 5 more days </li></ul><ul><li>nine months later: attack of appendicitis </li></ul>
