the virtuous Sleeping Beauty and the monstrous muse, this chapter explores how the female body is dreamed (up) in the Gothic imaginings of psychoanalysis and surrealism. Focusing in particular on Carter’s early fiction, it examines these Gothic inventions of automated femininity as another reassertion of male creative authority. With reference to The Magic Toyshop and ‘The Loves of Lady Purple

this curious institutional construction that criminal law so grandiloquently protects and calls Sex? I  The Sex of the State Drawing from some broad interpretations of psychology and psychoanalysis, criminal law constructed the concept of Sex-as-law as a reality of psychological nature. But far from conceiving of this reality in the same way as other psychological phenomena—that is to say, as symbolic phenomena and therefore subject to individual variation—the law treated it as if it were a physiological process analogous to digestion or circulation, and therefore

therefore need to inquire into the ambiguities of love-hate encounters between fathers and their sons. Psychoanalysis and art here meet politics. Introduction to Pasolini’s subjectivity The political aspect of mental life and its deceptive representations are themes that permeate Pasolini’s approach not only towards the father–son relationship but also towards that between mother and

aspects of their self-interpretation. They also need to take responsibility for the pain they inflict on others, the fictive aspects of their characters, their deceits and the pleasure they find in pain. For Lacan, ethics is a matter of pathological wrongs – the case where evil or transgressions are enjoyed at the expense of one’s neighbours. The challenge of psychoanalysis is to encourage Catholics and

’ over ‘Irish barbarism’, and their removal of the Irish Other from their historiography. 4 These are attempts at self-idealisation. Added to these, the authors note that the Protestant People see their norms and beliefs as immutable, which evokes the immutability of the imago in Lacanian psychoanalysis, which the child perceives in the mirror and confuses with itself in the mirror stage. Their sense of

broad range of theoretical perspectives: [ 11 ] Unstable universalities poststructuralism, psychoanalysis, deconstruction, post-Marxism, autonomism – while others would not come under any of these categories. So it has to be emphasised, firstly, that these thinkers are very different, despite a certain theoretical heritage that some might share. They engage with different political questions in very different ways, some more obliquely than others. Moreover, their differences are just as important, for the purposes of this study, as their similarities. Indeed, it is

holding both these views simultaneously. People compartmentalise attitudes and feelings to deal with complexity, as psychoanalysis attests. Likewise, on the issue of voting patterns, it is not hard to believe that people prioritised their goals and set the election of Bobby Sands to Parliament above any particular theological view they may or may not have had on the hunger strike itself. So the relevance of

Experiments in cultural criticism
Editors: Jackie Stacey and Janet Wolff

Writing Otherwise is a collection of essays by established feminist and cultural critics interested in experimenting with new styles of expression. Leading figures in their field, such as Marianne Hirsch, Lynne Pearce, Griselda Pollock, Carol Smart, Jackie Stacey and Janet Wolff, all risk new ways of writing about themselves and their subjects. Contributions move beyond conventional academic writing and into more exploratory registers to consider subjects such as: feminist collaborations, memories of dislocation, movement and belonging, intimacy and affect, encountering difference, passionate connections to art and opera. Some chapters use personal writing to interrogate theoretical issues; others put conceptual questions next to therapeutic ones; all of them offer the reader new ways of thinking about how and why we write, and how we might do it differently. Discovering the creative spaces in between traditional genres, many of the chapters show how new styles of writing open up new ways of doing cultural criticism. Aimed at both general and academic readers interested in how scholarly writing might be more innovative and creative, this collection introduces the personal, the poetic and the experimental into the frame of cultural criticism. This collection of essays is highly interdisciplinary and contributes to debates in sociology, history, anthropology, art history, cultural and media studies and gender studies.

basis for discussion of the novels throughout the book. Psychoanalytic Criticism Whereas the critique of ideology takes gender dominance as ‘given’, psychoanalysis can explain how boys and girls acquire the cultural status of ‘men’ and ‘women’ through socialisation within the family. Much feminist criticism uses the terminology of the French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan (see Eagleton, 1983: 151–93; Mitchell and Rose; Belsey), who has defined the acquisition of language, and with it the values of society, as ‘entry into the symbolic order’. Lacan highlights the fact

looking critically at feminism from within, an important frame that Rose uses is that of psychoanalysis. She clarifies that it is not the individual psyche that she is referring to but the collective psyche. ‘We are “peopled” by others. Our psyche is a social space’, she writes (Rose, 2017 : 72). In this space of the psyche Rose looks at sexuality, in particular, since it ‘always contains an element beyond human manipulation, however free we think we are’. This is a valuable space because it is in the ‘sexual
