Description

This collection of essays aims to introduce undergraduate students to Freudian methods of interpretation and to show how these methods have been transformed by recent developments in French psychoanalysis, particularly by the influence of Jacques Lacan. This reader combines an explanatory introduction with examples of the literary criticism which has emerged from the conjunction between psychoanalysis and post-structuralism. It defines concepts and methods by tracing the role the story of Oedipus has played in the development of psychoanalytic theory and criticism; the essays themselves are divided into three section - drama, narrative and poetry - and aim to give students a wide perspective on current directions in psychoanalytic criticism.
