The Purloined Poe

Lacan, Derrida, and Psychoanalytic Reading

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.

Reviews

In the story of the interpretations, reinterpretations, displacements, and replacements that have accreted around Poe's 'The Purloined Letter,' this collection, The Purloined Poe, comes like an answer to a... riddle.

- Hana Charney - Psychoanalytic Books

A valuable, critical text.

- Year's Work in English Studies

A fascinating volume for both the fledgling and the besotted amateurs of contemporary criticism.
