Romantic Psychoanalysis: The Burden of the Mystery

Cover
SUNY Press - 333 Seiten
In this provocative work, Joel Faflak argues that Romanticism, particularly British Romantic poetry, invents psychoanalysis in advance of Freud. The Romantic period has long been treated as a time of incipient psychological exploration anticipating more sophisticated discoveries in the science of the mind. Romantic Psychoanalysis challenges this assumption by treating psychoanalysis in the Romantic period as a discovery unto itself, a way of taking Freud back to his future. Reading Romantic literature against eighteenth- and nineteenth-century philosophy, Faflak contends that Romantic poetry and prose including works by Coleridge, De Quincey, Keats, and Wordsworth remind a later psychoanalysis of its fundamental matrix in phantasy and thus of its profoundly literary nature.
