The End of the Line: Essays on Psychoanalysis and the Sublime

Excerpt

The essays collected here were written for various occasions over a period of years: if they go together it is in the way that tokens of a preoccupation go together. I have slightly rearranged the order in which they appear, bringing related texts or topics together, and I have added an Afterword, in which I have tried to spell out some of their common concerns.

I am grateful to the editors and publishers of the periodicals and collections in which these articles first appeared for granting me permission to reprint them here. Specifically: to Editions du Seuiland the University of Chicago, for A Reading of Longinus, which first appeared in French in Poétique (1973) 15 and in English in Critical Inquiry (1983) 9; to Boston University for Wordsworth and the Tears of Adam, Studies in Romanticism (1967) 7; to the Johns Hopkins University Press, for The Notion of Blockage in the Literature of the Sublime in Geoffrey H. Hartman ed., Psychoanalysis and the Question of the Text (Baltimore and London, 1978) and for Recognizing Casaubon in Glyph 6 (1979); to Diacritics for Flaubert's Conversion (Summer 1972) and Dora's Secrets, Freud's Techniques (Spring 1983); to the Cornell University Press for Freud and the Sandman in Josué V.
