Overview

Doreen Fowler's Faulkner: The Return of the Repressed is only the second book-length pychoanalytic interpretation of Faulkner's oeuvre and the first to be predicated on Lacanian theory as modified by Kristeva and Chodorow. Fowler exposes psychic conflicts that drive Faulkner's fiction and posits from them an underlying tension between the desire for difference and wholeness, between the mother and the father, between the living body and death.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Fowler English, U. of Mississippi uses a feminist psychoanalytic methodology to assess the symbolic meanings of race and gender in five of Faulkner's major works. Focusing on black and female characters, she demonstrates how these figures represent psychic doubles for Faulkner's white male protagonists. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
