And now I recognize as yours the sign That led my wanderings to this your grove; Else had I never lighted on you first, A wineless man on your seat of native rock. O goddesses, fulfill Apollo's word, Grant me some consummation of my life, If haply I appear not all too vile, A thrall to sorrow worse than any slave. Hear, gentle daughters of primeval Night, Hear, namesake of great Pallas; Athens, first Of cities, pity this dishonored shade, The ghost of him who once was Oedipus.

American Imago Spring , Reprinted in Freud Anthony Elliott. Cambridge: Polity Press, , On hotel notepaper in a smart grey Italian folder bearing the title Strictly Private … I have fallen in love with my wife Anna. The strangest thing about it is that I am sixty, Anna is forty-three; we have been married for twenty-five years and have several children. Also, as a result of various negative factors, we have slept in separate rooms for almost half our married life. The night when everything began to change started with a routine meeting at a colleague's house. We had a fairly stimulating discussion.
Praise for the new edition of THE DIARY OF A LOST GIRL:
I walked home with a sense of satisfaction but also with undercurrents of sadness. Our house, when I arrived, was silent. I climbed the stairs to bed, removing my collar as I did so. There was a light under my eldest son's bedroom door; in his first year at the University, he would be studying, I hoped. Or would he be exploring forbidden literature? There was a light too under my wife's door; she would be reading some romance or detective story; I did not bother to say goodnight.
I undressed and got into bed. I do not have a natural gift for accepting the death of the libido.
Diary of a Lost Girl (Louise Brooks edition)
Anna has never completely lost her attraction in my sight. For a long time I tried to stir a response in her, though by now I had given it up as a useless exercise. Partly I sublimated, partly I clung to memories of our passionate youth. I had a very small artistic talent in my schooldays; in our romantic years she allowed me to resurrect my gift, making some extremely erotic sketches of her.
I still cherished them, and used them.
The lost girls
I planned to use them that night. I was opening a cabinet when Anna appeared, smiling, clad in a gauzy dressing-robe. Thomas, , p. Young-Bruehl, E. Anna Freud: A biography. New York: Summit Books. About Losing and Being Lost Concerning last night's dream. I dream, as I have often done, that he is here again. All of these recent dreams have the same character: the main role is played not by my longing for him but rather by his longing for me. The main scene in the dreams are always of his tenderness to me, which always takes the form of my own, earlier tenderness.
In reality he never showed either [i. The reversal can be simply the fulfillment of my wish [for tenderness], but it is probably also something else. In the first dream of this kind he openly said: "I have always longed for you so. The main feeling in yesterday's dream is that he is wandering about on top of mountains, hills while I am doing other things. At the same time, I have an inner restlessness, a feeling that I should stop whatever I am doing and go walking with him. Eventually he calls me to him and demands this himself.
I am very relieved and lean myself against him , crying in a way that is very familiar to both of us. My thoughts are troubled: he should not have called me, it is as if a renunciation or a form of progress had been undone because he called. I am puzzled. In the dream the feeling is very strong that he is wandering around alone and "lost. Associations: the poem by Albrech Schaeffer, "You strong and dear wayfarer I was with you at each step of the way -- there was no victory I did not also win -- no sorrow I did not suffer beside you, you strong and you dear wanderer Odysseus -- even if he is unfaithful -- homeless -- a servant in the distant lands.
Odysseus is truly lost, and cannot find his way to his homeland. Rest of the day: inquiry from Kag [Kagran] whether he [Freud] is returning to Vienna. I answer: never. Wanderer, immigrant, eternal Jew. The reproach is: he is unfaithful to me on his travels, in spite of my faithfulness; like Odysseus toward Penelope. The self-reproach which is projected in this reproach: I am unfaithful to him; which shows in the feeling in the dream.
Whether it concerns this house, which I want to leave? For one with which he is not familiar. Another layer of meaning: "I am surprised that he calls me to him. Young-Bruehl, , pp. I must tell you a dream which I had in my last night in Walberswick. I was very depressed that night and I only slept a very little. But in that short time I dreamt: I was in Palestine and it was all very interesting.
I visited all sorts of places and met many people whom I half seemed to know. A woman invited me to eat goose with them. I cried apparently and she asked me whether I was ill. I said "no, but I have been ill. I could not understand a word of anybody's language and they could not understand me. The "Losing" folder has another dream about her father in I had a further dream about my father, a curious double one might say halfhearted one. It was actually into parts, running alongside.
In Part I, I was to marry a man, rather indistinct, youngish, a doctor I was very unwilling. In Part II, my father and mother had got lost in the dark place in the city, Paris? And I was looking for them with search parties. After leaving Hollywood in , Brooks went to Germany and was cast by director G. Thymiane fights back against this oppressive regime and escapes from the school with her friend Erika Edith Meinhard. Discovering that her baby has died, Thymiane wanders the streets in despair, until she eventually tracks down Erika, who is working in a brothel. Before writing The Song of the Lark , she met Olive Fremstad, a Wagnerian soprano, who inspired her to create Thea Kronborg in the form of an artist.
The resulting story of Thea Kronborg's development as an opera singer fused Cather's childhood with Fremstad's success. Jim's first reaction to the landscape undoubtedly parallels the author's: "There was nothing but land; not a country at all, but the material out of which countries are made. I had the feeling that the world was left behind, that we had got over the edge of it, and were outside man's jurisdiction.
Between that earth and that sky, I felt erased, blotted out. I was entirely happy. Perhaps we feel like that when we die and become part of something entire, whether it is sun and air, or goodness and knowledge. At any rate, that is happiness; to be dissolved into something complete and great. When it comes to one, it comes as naturally as sleep. Critics unanimously praised the novel. As she confided to her childhood friend Carrie Miner Sherwood, "I feel I've made a contribution to American letters with that book.
Desiring a publisher who would promote her artistic concerns, Cather switched her alliances in from Houghton-Mifflin to Alfred Knopf.
Knopf allowed Cather the freedom to be uncompromising in her work; he fostered her national reputation and ensured her financial success. Psychologically, however, Cather's mood had changed. In comparison to her epic novels of the s, Cather's post-war novels seem pervaded by disillusionment and despondency. At the end of the novel, a mother reflects gratefully that her son died as a soldier, still believing "the cause was glorious" — a belief he could not have possibly sustained had he survived the war.
Although many critics panned it, scores of former soldiers wrote her letters of appreciation, thanking her for capturing just how they felt during the war. Her efforts secured her the Pulitzer Prize for this novel. Once again, innocence brushes up against the realities of the world: the young Niel Herbert first adores Mrs. Forrester, then scorns her in disillusionment when she betrays his ideals. In the end he recalls her memory, glad for the part she played "in breaking him to life," and also for her power "of suggesting things much lovelier than herself, as the perfume of a single flower may call up the whole sweetness of spring.
Most critics applauded the power of her artistry in this novel, although a handful complained about the immorality of the adulterous heroine. The same theme of disillusionment runs heavily throughout The Professor's House as well.

As his despondency deepens, he turns to the memory of his former student Tom Outland, in whom he recalls the promise of youth cut short by death in World War I. The purposelessness of Tom's death underscores the post-war malaise of the Professor — indeed, of the modernist world. The Professor will always feel solitude, alienation, the sense of always being not-at-home — in short, he concludes, he will learn to live without delight. The novel reflects Cather's own sense of alienation within the modern world. Cather published My Mortal Enemy before producing her greatest artistic achievement, Death Comes for the Archbishop With the same power she had used to invoke the landscape of the Plains, Cather represented the beauty and the history of the southwest United States.
Cather took pains with her presentation: her writing was well researched and her attention to the details of layout made this the most handsomely produced book of her career. Critics immediately hailed it as "an American classic," a book of perfection. Cather reflected that writing the novel had been such an enjoyable process for her, she was sad to say goodbye to her characters when she finished. Cather wrote another historical novel, Shadows on the Rock , this time centering on seventeenth-century French Quebec.
Although her father's death and her mother's stroke slowed progress on this book, Cather felt that writing this novel gave her a sense of refuge during a tumultuous emotional period. The book enjoyed high sales, becoming the most popular book of Harris" and "Neighbour Rosicky. The pace of her writing slowed tremendously during the s.
Cather published Lucy Gayheart in and Sapphira and the Slave Girl in , her last completed novel drawing from her family history in Virginia. Granville Hicks claimed that Cather offered her readers "supine romanticism" instead of substance. She received the gold medal for fiction from the National Institute of Arts and Letters in , an honor that marked a decade of achievement.
