Jacques Lacan by Jean-Michel Rabate
Book DescriptionThe French theorist Jacques Lacan has always been called a "literary" theoretician. This is a study of his literary analyses and examples, with an account of the importance of literature in the building of his highly original system of thought. Jean-Michel Rabate offers a systematic genealogy of Lacan's theory of literature, reconstructing a doctrine based upon Freudian insights, and revitalized through close readings of authors as diverse as Poe, Gide, Shakespeare, Plato, Claudel, Genet, Duras and Joyce. Not simply an essay about Lacan's influences or style, this book shows how the emergence of key terms like the "letter" and the "symptom" would not have been possible without innovative readings of literary texts.
