This essay sketches the civic poetics of Freud's metaphors and analogies. It takes up the ways in which metaphorisation and analogism enable the generation of certain conceptions of the organism, especially through those embedded histories Freud beleived he could establish through structured analysis (for example) of the present-day embryo's development. The essay proceeds by tracing emerging patterns (metaphors, images, analogies etc), and finishes with some observations on how these might relate to Freud's own contexts.
