"...is not a thing; it is a complex reality which is both intrapsychic and interpersonal, both individual and social. I can try to describe it, I can lead you to it, but you have to experience the reality of it. It occurs at the centre of your personality which is the source of all our actions and also the locus of all that happens to us."

Guises of Desire [Kindle Edition] By
The story takes place in Austria in the 1880s in a privileged but repressive Jewish family where the talented twenty-one-year-old Bertha dreams of becoming a writer and living a free life. When her beloved father falls seriously ill, Bertha cares for him, but then begins to develop a series of bizarre symptoms, including hallucinations, paralysis, aphasia, and altered states of consciousness. Breuer treats her with hypnosis and ‘moral therapy’, the psychotherapy of the day.
Based closely on case material discovered a century after events, the novel brings into question the published version appearing in Studies on Hysteria (Breuer and Freud, 1895). It goes beyond the accepted picture of Bertha as a hysteric whose symptoms were quasi-magically cleared up by protracted discussion. It presents instead a young woman suffering from an unidentified neurological disorder, a repressive upbringing, drug addiction and iatrogenic dependence on her doctor. It illustrates how, despite these handicaps, she was able to emerge some years later, enlightened and empowered, to become a leading feminist, writer and social worker.
