Lacan, Politics, Aesthetics
Lacan, Politics, Aesthetics (January 1996)
Willy Apollon - Editor
Richard Feldstein - Editor

This is an anthology of psychoanalytic criticism applied to the wider field of cultural studies including class, gender, representation, ideology, and law.

Deconstruction of Skepticism, Reinvention of Modernism
Ewa Plonowska Ziarek - Author

"There are many books on the links between deconstruction and literary modernism, but I know of no work that undertakes so detailed a confrontation between a series of major thinkers (Cavell, Derrida, Levinas, Benjamin) and writers (Kafka, Beckett, Gombrowicz). The strategy is an original one. It is rare that a critic has the kind of dual sensibility that is needed to carry it off." -- Alexander Gelley, University of California, Irvine

Critical Essays
Leslie Anne Boldt-Irons - Editor

Essays on the French writer and critic Georges Bataille, that examine his thought in relation to Hegel, Nietzsche, and Derrida.

"I will say that Leslie Boldt-Irons' collection represents the most accurate and successful attempt made to popularize--without reducing--Bataille's thought in the United States. For this reason, it constitutes an indispensable asset for any scholar, Bataillian or not, in the field of postmoder...(Read More)
