About the Book

This book is designed to help students learn the basics of psychoanalytic theory and criticism as they have developed in the last hundred years and as they have been put to use in literary and cultural studies. It focuses on Freud’s texts as the core and beginning of the discipline, while also pointing to the work of other psychoanalysts and literary and cultural theorists who have refined and developed Freud’s formulations. The book shows a way to engage with psychoanalysis that is loyal to Freud and what has come since Freud in psychoanalytic thinking.
