Languages of publication
René Laforgue reading Baudelaire and Rousseau. An autobiographical reading? Psychoanalysis of reading of the opus does not have a good reputation in our times. For the most part it stems from the fact that analyses have never stopped being full of themselves and have demanded a right to say the final word for a subject of the scrutinizing opus placing emphasis on the author’s personality. René Laforgue, who belongs to the first fraternity of french psychoanalysts, was doing research connected with artists like Baudelaire or Jean-Jacques Rousseau treating them not as the artists but as patients. This analyse, which was carried out by Laforgue, is created to put the final touch to his own conception of the neurosis of defeat criticizing by Freud. It is possible also to read authors mentioned above by Laforque in his biographical context. His suspicious connections with the occupier during the second world war ruined his reputation and resulted in his personal failure. It seems that a reason of this self-destruction was inattentive Freud’s attitude to himself as well as his work.
