Dies gelingt ihm, indem er die zentralen Begriffe anschaulich und amüsant mit Hilfe von bekannten Hollywood-Filmen erklärt. Eine Zeittafel sowie eine kommentierte Bibliographie zur weiterführenden Lektüre runden den Band ab.

Beginning theory has been helping students navigate through the thickets of literary and cultural theory for over two decades. This new and expanded fourth edition continues to offer students and readers the best one-volume introduction to the field. The bewildering variety of approaches, theorists and technical language is lucidly and expertly unravelled. Unlike many books which assume certain positions about the critics and the theories they represent, Peter Barry allows readers to develop their own ideas once first principles and concepts have been grasped. The book has been updated for this edition and includes a new introduction, expanded chapters, and an overview of the subject (Theory after Theory) which maps the arrival of new 'isms' since the second edition appeared in 2002 and the third edition in 2009.

Der Germanist und Psychoanalytiker Otto Rank (1884-1939) behandelt und interpretiert hier spannend das Doppelgangermotiv in der Literatur (E.T. A. Hoffmann, Jean Paul, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allen Poe, Fjodor Dostojewski u.a., sowie in Marchen). Der Doppelganger ist das selbststandig gewordene Spiegelbild der Hauptfigur und steht fur die Spaltung des Ichs und den drohenden Tod. Eng damit verknupft ist narzisstische Selbstverliebtheit. Eine identische seelische Struktur ist in den Grundzugen bei den Dichtern festzustellen. Gleichermassen ist das Motiv des Schattenlosen bei Naturvolkern zu verstehen, was Rank mit vielen Beispielen belegt. Nachdruck der Ausgabe von 1925

Genius and charismatic leader of a psychoanalytic movement that in the 1950s and 1960s provided a focal point for the French intelligentsia, Jacques Lacan attracted a cult following. Ecrits is his most important work, bringing together twenty-seven articles and lectures originally published between 1936 and 1966. Following its first publication in 1966, the book gained Lacan international attention and exercised a powerful influence on contemporary intellectual life. To this day, Lacan's radical, brilliant and complex ideas continue to be highly influential in everything from film theory to art history and literary criticism. Ecrits is the essential source for anyone who seeks to understand this seminal thinker and his influence on contemporary thought and culture.
