    Abstract

    A series of text works for the Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies, University of London, on the glass walls of room 269 In the third edition of The Interpretation of Dreams, Freud makes the observation: ‘It is impossible to translate a dream into a foreign language’ (1900, p. 99, fn. 1). In a letter of 13 April 1911, to Samuel Jankelévitch, he remarks that his dream book seems to him to be untranslatable because of its dream texts, and if a translation were to be done, he feels it would probably scare French people away from further reading. Transcript is a project of impossible interpretation and translation, taking texts à la lettre and avant la lettre.
