Freud is considered the founder of psychoanalysis and lived from  1856 – 1939.   Dr. A. A. Brill was a psychiatrist and was the first to translate into English most of the major works of Freud and thus brought his writings to a new community of American psychologists and psychiatrists.  Included in this volume are the first translations of Psychopathology of Everyday Life, The Interpretation of Dreams, Three Contributions to the Theory of Sex, Wit and Its Relation to the Unconscious, Totem and Taboo and The History of the Psychoanalytic Movement.  Brill’s translations are the first and some scholars prefer later translations that are seen as more vivid.
