From the PublisherAmericanists who have felt dissatisfied with the limits of the canonicity debate will be happy to find this work. Those interested in the individual artists will also find the readings quite interesting in themselves, but the tie-in to recent psychoanalytic theory will also excite interest. The book will be helpful in African American and women's studies programs that have been warned off of psychoanalytic approaches on the basis of a bad experience with psychoanalytic applications that failed-this 'new' Lacanian one does not fail-to make space for the other subjects (feminine, racial, etc.).— Juliet Flower MacCannell, author of The Hysteric's Guide to the Future Female Subject
"Very interesting, intriguing, provocative-an outstanding contribution to the fields of the canon debate as well as literary and cultural studies. By opening up the gap of the canonical unconscious, the author attempts to access the multiple voices which have been silenced and repressed by the so-called canonized tradition. Appropriating Lacan and Zoizûek in terms of the ethics of psychoanalysis, the author looks at the canon wars from a fresh intellectual perspective."— Youngmin Kim, Dongguk University, Korea"
