Summary
One of the first successful attempts to apply psychonalytic concepts to literature, which heralded the advent of a significant new school of criticism which sought to uncover the unconscious sexual motivations of the writer and often revealed surprising divergences from his conscious artistic goals. In this new and revised edition, the author uses the findings of recent scholarship and modern psychanalytic research to give the reader penetrating and often startling interpretations of Poe, Coleridge, Balzac, Oscar Wilde, Keats and many others
