Created in Our Image: The Miniature Body of the Doll as Subject and Object

Synopsis

Dolls and puppets can be viewed as the Freudian Uncanny, the Lacanian Other, the Kristevan Abject, and The Miniature and The Gigantic of Susan Stewart. The psychological implications of their creation are traced through several centuries of literature, primarily British fiction and poetry from the latter half of the eighteenth century to the present, plus some examples from American and Continental fiction.
