This chapter comments on Emerson's case notes covering the period from 24 January to 10 May 1912. Consisting of 80 sessions, this first part of the treatment formed, to Emerson's mind, a satisfyingly interpretable whole. He determined at the outset that several repressed traumata lay at the root of his patient's hysteria and saw it as the task of analysis to bring them fully back to memory.
