"Elizabeth Wright's Psychoanalytic Criticism is the only place I know where two vital discourses, psychoanalysis and literary criticism, can achieve more than a passing acquaintance with each other. Professor Wright's central concern, the problematic relation of art to psychoanalysis, shapes the confrontations she carefully stages between the various Freudian and post-Freudian theories and their literary-critical counterparts. The new chapters that include contemporary work by Zizek, feminists, and the new Lacanians maintain this book as crucially relevant." Juliet Flower MacCannell, The University of California
"Psychoanalytic Criticism provided a judicious and indispensable guide to this often bewildering and complex field of literary studies ... This second and updated edition, therefore, is to be welcomed. Wright has not just reissued the book but has used the opportunity to take stock of the field and reappraise the current state of play in psychoanalytic studies." Psychoanalytic Studies
