PAULA, Ana Paula Paes de. Hysteria, desire and the enigma of the feminine. Reverso [online]. 2019, vol.41, n.77, pp. 95-102. ISSN 0102-7395.

The aim of the article is to highlight the relationships between original masochism and hysteria, arguing that the hysterical symptoms are a reenactment of the misunderstood sexual from the primary experience of masochism, which refer to the enigma of the feminine. For this, Freudian writings on hysteria, the economic problem of masochism and Lacanian elaborations on "object a" and enjoyment will be resumed, undertaking a dialogue with Emilse Naves, which sustains a relation between hysteria and the death drive in order to rescue the primacy of sexual and Eros.

Keywords : Female; Hysteria; Desire.
