How James Joyce Made His Name: A Reading of the Final Lacan

How James Joyce Made His Name: A Reading of the Final Lacan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this lucid and compelling analysis of Lacan's twenty-third seminar, “Le Sinthome,” Roberto Harari points to new psychoanalytic pathways that lead beyond Freudian oedipal dynamics.

Lacan's seminar measures the boundaries between creativity and neurosis. We learn how poetry and wordplay may offer alternatives to neurotic pain and even psychotic delusions, with Joyce as our subject.

This new translation makes the intricacies of Lacan's seminar available to the English-speaking world for the first time. The author's accessible, vigorous prose explains the nuances of Lacanian theory with perfect clarity.

In the extraordinary encounter between Lacan and Joyce, Harari reveals unexpected affinities between them both as theorists and writers. It illustrates how literature is the aesthetic domain that is closest to the analytic experience.

Book News Annotation:

In it, Lacan uses the writing of James Joyce as an example of how poetry and wordplay may offer alternatives to neurotic pain and even psychotic delusions. The text was originally published in 1995 in Spanish as Translated by Luke Thurston. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
