# they were probably the two most famous anti-Freudians around.

That's not the whole truth: the most famous anti-Freudian around was Karl
Kraus (if you need brilliant aphorisms against psychoanalyis look into the
"Fackel") and who said that "he would go the way back to childhood rather
with J. Paul than with S. Freud." Jean Paul - his full name was Jean Paul
Friedrich Richter - was a famous German writer (1763-1825).

Jean Paul himself was the most famous pre-Nabokovian and the texture in all
of his novels is pure Pale Fire.
