Circles of Censorship: Censorship and Its Metaphors in French History, Literature, and Theory

Synopsis

Circles of Censorship examines the ideas and practice of censorship and of freedom of expression in post-revolutionary French literary culture. Focusing on the fate of the work of writers such as Flaubert and Sade, and on the Freudian-influenced attempts by the Surrealists and the journal Tel Quel to evade censorship, Harrison presents a provocative critique of the ideas on censorship which currently dominate the discourses of human rights, psychoanalysis, and literary culture.
