The Purloined Poe by John P. Muller
Lacan, Derrida, and Psychoanalytic Reading

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Jacques Lacan's seminar on "The Purloined Letter" at once challenged literary theorists and revealed a radically new conception of psychoanalysis. His far-reaching claims about language and truth provoked a vigorous critique by Jacques Derrida, whose essay in turn has spawned further responses from Barbara Johnson, Jane Gallop, Irene Harvey, Norman Holland, and others.
