The five essays in this book examine the connections between literary censorship and the political repression of women in Arthur Schnitzler’s Frau Berta Garlan, Sigmund Freud’s case history of «Dora», and Hugo von Hofmannsthal’s Elektra – three male representations of female characters in Hapsburg Austria between 1900 and 1905.
