Summary
Arguing that Sigmund Freud's interpretation of the Oedipus myth has unduly influenced studies of the works of Modernist writers, Buchanan re-examines the Oedipal narratives of authors such as D.H. Lawrence, T.S. Eliot, W.B. Yeats, Virginia Woolf, and James Joyce in order to explore their conflicted attitudes towards the humanism that underpins Freud's views
