La introducción del psicoanálisis en la literatura española a través de su representación

Abstract : This article aims to analyse the introduction of psychoanalysis in Spanish literature through its representation. The introduction of psychoanalysis in Spain during the first decades of the 20th century meant the appearance of a new subject in some works of fiction in which psychoanalysis was referred to. Psychoanalysts appeared as characters in a few plays and novels, in which Freudian theories were presented and sometimes discussed. This article focuses on the analysis of this literary innovation, which is an aspect of the reception of psychoanalysis in Spain that has hardly been studied. Firstly, it addresses the question of the first fictional psychoanalysts. Secondly, it addresses the representation of the psychoanalytic therapeutic method and the role played by psychoanalysis in the relevant novels and plays, focusing particularly on the different aspects of Freudian theories that authors seem to have found most interesting, and on the connections between this phenomenon and the introduction of psychoanalysis in Spanish medical circles.
