Along with his theoretical writings about psychoanalysis, Freud also wrote a number of “case histories,” which provide psychoanalytic explanations, and descriptions of the treatment, of particular patients. One of the most well-known of these case histories is “From the History of an Infantile Neurosis,” which is more conventionally referred to as “The Wolf Man.” It is called “The Wolf Man” because, at the center of this case history, is a dream that Freud’s patient, now known to be Sergei Pankejeff, had as a child. In the dream, Pankejeff finds himself lying in his bed in the middle of the night. He looks toward his opened window, only to discover a group of white wolves staring at him intently. In 1964, Pankejeff composed a painting of the dream.
