In this paper the Author deals with the issue of representation and its relation to anxiety. He considers anxiety as an excess of stimulation that falls down on the psychic apparatus. He focuses his attention on the clinical narrative with the assumption that the narrative is the opposite of traumatic anxiety. He believes that his narration is already a theorization about the session and that in this context free association allows the analyst’s floating attention to be available to be traumatized. He dwells upon the allegorical narrative as conceived by Walter Benjamin: an expressive form that fits well to the circumstances of the fleeting movement of psychoanalytical clinical fact.
Keywords: Allegory, Anxiety, Trauma, Free Association, Floating Attention, Genitality, Walter Benjamin
