Summary
"Psychoanalysis and the Scene of Reading explores some of the ways in which we think about reading and the effects reading has on us. Drawing on the rich tradition of British object relations, Psychoanalysis and the Scene of Reading is a literary critic's approach to 'the scene of reading' understood from a psychoanalytic perspective. Linked essays on books and interiority, memory and landscape, trauma and literary transmission provide a subtle account of writing by Woolf, Austen, Rousseau, and Romantic women, as well as fictional accounts of slavery and colonialism, and Holocaust memoirs."--Jacket
