"STRANGELY ENOUGH"

The visual image: Freud sees his lower body, pelvis and legs, as an observer, does not notice their absence nor any "gruesome feeling." As hinted at by the upper-case letters in which he places this phrase, the awareness in the dream that the scene was strange is richly over-determined. Freud notes that "strangely enough" alludes both to She and to another Rider Haggard novel, Heart of the World, from which the images of the Red Indians, the girl, and the wooden house come (1900 [SE 5], p. 454).
