Inspired by Freud’s observation in ‘The Wolf Man’ that the truth is banal, this essay discusses Hoffmann’s ‘The Sandman’, Salinger’s ‘Catcher in the Rye’ and Berman’s creative use of the (mis)translated phrase from Marx, ‘All that is solid melts into air’, to illustrate the productive potential of misinterpreting words.
