Summary

What is object-relations theory and what does it have to do with literary studies? How can Freud's phallocentric theories be applied by feminist critics? In Psychoanalysis and Gender: An Introductory Reader Rosalind Minsky answers these questions and more, offering students a clear, straightforward overview without ever losing them in jargon.
In the first section Minsky outlines the fundamentals of the theory, introducing the key thinkers and providing clear commentary. In the second section, the theory is demonstrated by an anthology of seminal essays which includes:
* Feminity by Sigmund Freud
* Envy and Gratitude by Melanie Klein
* An extract from Transitional Objects and Transitional Phenomena by Donald Winnicot
* The Meaning of the Phallus by Jacques Lacan
* An extract from Women's Time by Julia Kristeva
* An extract from Speculum of the Other Woman by Luce Irigaray
