This chapter examines one exemplary instance of the optical unconscious that lies latent in Freud’s interpretation of the “R is my uncle dream” as recounted in his Interpretation of Dreams. Drawing on the work of Freud, Benjamin, Gilman, Schmitt, and others, Fardy discusses how the dream and its analysis raise a set of important questions on the nature of photography, the unconscious, and their intersections, as well as a wish to see and resist the specular construction of the figure of the Jew in fin de siècle Europe.
