A photograph of Augustine Gleizes from Medical Muses: Hysteria in Nineteenth-Century Paris by Asti Hustvedt

Through hypnosis, Jean-Martin Charcot sparked off different states in his patients like catalepsy, lethargy or somnambulism, up to cause artificial spasms by rubbing flexors. This photography shows his patient, Augustine, in a state of lethargy. The back muscles and those of the thighs and legs are contracted by friction; the rigid body placed between two chairs was holding the pose for several minutes.

I am glad if the broken words helped you.”

Gustave Doré - Illustration from Little Red Riding Hood by Charles Perrault, 1870
"There are two ways of walking through a wood. The first is to try one or several routes (so as to get out of the wood as fast as possible, say, or to reach the house of grandmother, Tom Thumb, or Hansel and Gretel); the second is to walk so as to discover what the wood is like and find out why some paths are accessible and others are not."
