Notes

First edition, first impression. In Jokes and their Relation to the Unconscious, Freud distinguishes between jokes, the comic, and humour, arguing that the formation of jokes like dreams can be traced to the unconscious. Divided into three parts, the investigation psychoanalyses the technique of jokes, the motives behind them, and the relationship between jokes and dreams. "Jokes held a deep, personal significance for Freud Freud often identified with joke characters, jokes provided associations to his own dreams, and several important psychoanalytic discoveries may first have been suggested to Freud by jokes" (Oring, p. 3).
