About the Book

This volume provides an overview of Lacan’s significant psychoanalytic theories. It delves into the various ways in which Lacan made sense of the human subject, discusses the clinical structures of psychosis, neurosis and perversion, and uniquely demonstrates the application of Lacanian psychoanalytic criticism through a detailed analysis of John Fowles’s The French Lieutenant’s Woman. Engaging with Lacan beyond the clinical context, the book also examines how Lacan’s work has been read in the domains of film studies, gender studies, postcolonial studies and deconstruction.
