The Purloined Poe: Lacan, Derrida, and Psychoanalytic Reading by Muller, Prof John P.

In 1956 Jacques Lacan proposed an interpretation of Edgar Allan Poes Purloined Letter that at once challenged literary theorists and revealed a radical new concept of psychoanalysis. Lacans far reaching claims about language and truth provoked a vigorous critique by Jacques Derrida, whose essay in turn spawned further responses from other writers. The Purloined Poe brings Poes story together with these readings to provide a structured exercise in the elaboration of text interpretation.
