The FinalYear

"if often he was wrong and, at times, absurd, to us he is no more a person now but a whole climate of opinion" - W.H. Auden, "In Memory of Sigmund Freud"

After arriving in London, Freud and his wife, Martha, moved into a new home at 20 Maresfield Gardens. Since 1923, Freud had been battling mouth cancer, which had required numerous operations. His final surgery was performed in September of 1938. That same year, he published his final and perhaps most controversial book, Moses and Monotheism.

When his cancer once again returned, his doctor's declared the tumor inoperable. His condition continued to deteriorate throughout the year. On September 21, Freud asked his doctor to administer a large dose of morphine. He died on September 23, 1939 at the age of 83.
