Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This work contains 16 academic essays by as many authors, including Mazzio (English, Univ. of Michigan), Trevor (teaching fellow, English, Harvard), and Marjorie Garber, who edits the "Culture Work" series, of which this is the sixth book. Most of the authors are from English departments and write heady stuff, in this case contrasting and melding epistemologies of Marx and Freud to delve into 15th- and 16th-century individuality (subjectivity). Those familiar with Judith Butler, Jacques Lacan, Slavoj Zizek, and Joan Copjec, who are often referred to, will be comfortable with the language and some of the arguments. However, only general readers with backgrounds in the chapter topics (e.g., Shakespeare, Villon) or those who enjoy brilliant speculation on rarefied ideas will be rewarded. "The Inside Story" by David Hillman (the only psychologist here) concerns the boundaries of inner and outer, the spatial metaphor as found in Hamlet. This is material for historians in general and of culture and medicine in particular, as well as psychoanalytically sophisticated literary critics.--E. James Lieberman, George Washington Univ. Sch. of Medicine, Washington, DC Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
