Figuring Lacan : Criticism and the Unconscious Hardback
Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Lacan series
It could be argued that the influence of Lacan on modern literary studies has been greater than anyone's.
Lacan has historicised the universal or mythic perceptions of Freud, and thus lent a new status to literature as a cultural artefact.
This book, originally published in 1986, aims to delineate the trends in the uses made of Lacan today; to examine the theoretical substructure by which his work is accommodated to literature; and to analyse the way in which his work `models' the formal relation of the literary text to other texts, to history and to politics.
