Editorial Reviews

'Professor Bowie's perspicious triangulation of the works of Freud, Proust, and Lacan yields fascinating insights into the thought of each - and provocative, though appropriately qualified, speculations regarding the relations among 'theory', 'fiction', and 'perception' in their respective efforts to map the terrain of human consciousness. This book should be welcomed by critics, theorists, and historians of literature and culture alike.' Hayden White, University of California, Santa Cruz
