Freud Forever – An Interview with Panorama : 21st November 1974 (Rome) : Jacques Lacan with Emilia Granzotto

by Julia Evans on November 21, 1974

This interview was originally held in French and subsequently translated into Italian for publication in the magazine Panorama in 1974. It was later translated back into French by Paul Lemoine. The whereabouts of the original French transcript remains a mystery. This English version is based on the French translation, but with reference to the Italian, thus rectifying a few inaccuracies in the Lemoine translation published in La Cause du désir, No. 88.

Translated into English by Philip Dravers & published in Hurly Burly Issue 12 : January 2015 : p13 – 21 Note : this issue was not printed and is available in pdf from Julia Evans.
