In this paper, the author takes up Freud’s analysis of the so-called dream of Irma’s injection to be an example par excellence of Freud’s dream analysis. The analysis of this specific dream-work is crucial for understanding genealogy that is made of various contested readings between feminist and psychoanalytic criticism, on the one hand, and deconstruction, on the other. Freud’s analysis and its impact on reading procedures outside psychoanalytic interests are being examined in order to gain insight into how they contribute to the politics of reading literary texts. Thus, the discussion will range from Freud and Lacan to Felman and Derrida.
