Overview

Originally published in 1990, Psychoanalysis and… brings together essays by critics whose work demonstrates the lively interpenetration of psychoanalysis and other disciplines. Andrew Ross investigates psychoanalysis and Marxist thought; Joel Fineman reads the "sound of O" in Othello; Jane Gallop asks "Why does Freud giggle when the women leave the room?"; and Ellie Ragland-Sullivan examines Lacan’s seminars on James Joyce. This stimulating collection of work should still be required reading, especially for students of literature. But Psychoanalysis and… demonstrates that psychoanalysis – and theoretical criticism, and feminism, and Lacanian theory, and semiotics, and Marxism, and deconstruction, and literary criticism – was, at the time, a rich and expanding terrain.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
The "and" of the title refers to the variety of critical disciplines which, in the post-structuralist age, have appropriated much of the intellectual space traditionally staked out by psychoanalytic theory. The 13 essays presented here examine psychoanalysis in relation to theoretical criticism, feminism, Lacanian theory, semiotics, Marxism, deconstruction, and literary criticism. Well-done and keeps the mind- numbing jargon to a minimum. Paper edition (unseen), $14.95. Acidic paper. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
