LO BIANCO, Anna Carolina; COSTA-MOURA, Fernanda  and  SOLBERG, Marisa Cytryn. Psychoanalysis and modern narrative: the question of transmission. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2010, vol.22, n.2, pp.17-25. ISSN 0103-5665.

Benjamin says, in The storyteller, that collective experience formerly supported by narrative gives place in modern times to the news information and the novel whose subject matter is the individual experience. It is the moment of the appearance of a narrative centered in the self or in the neurotic family romances discussed by Freud. But whereas in the romance and short tales aims to search for meaning that can support the vicissitudes of a self that finds no support a shared life. The psychoanalysis instead, the lack of immediate meaning of cultural life gives birth to a new praxis that accounts for a subject which does not match the individual self. The analyst´s operation on history does not enlighten the meaning of things but on the contrary, it isolates the truth of the subject of the unconscious, thus founding the dimension of the real. Psychoanalytical transmission finds in this a different point of anchorage. Despite being set up in the same field as the modern forms of narrative, it makes for a field supported only by fragments and traces.

Keywords : psychoanalysis; narrative; transmission; real; subject.
