Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

In this chapter I shall try to explain desire according to psychoanalysis (here primarily Sigmund Freud and Jacques Lacan), and why desire is also a concept for that which drives language, literature, and the reader. I hope to show what it means to focus on the dynamics of desire when analysing not only the story, but also the composition and implied reader of the text.
