This book discusses Jacques Lacan’s contribution to understanding the life and work of James Joyce, introducing Colette Soler’s influential reading to English readers for the first time. Focusing on Lacan’s famous Seminar on Joyce, the reader will no doubt learn much from Lacan. Above all though, the book aims to point out something new: what Lacan learned from Joyce and what perhaps, without him, he would not have approached with so much confidence.

Le Sinthome. This is the title Jacques Lacan chose for his seminar devoted to Joyce in 1975-76. He wrote the word "sinthome" in its original spelling, coming from the Greek, and thus introducing what Joyce used so often: the equivocation between the sound that is heard and the graphic representation that is seen. Is it surprising that the author who recognised in 1956 with "The Agency of the Letter in the Unconscious" that the Freudian practice of speech revealed an unconscious that writes—something Jacques Derrida found quite remarkable—would end in 1975-76 with Joyce?

Lacan Reading Joyce will be of great interest to professional and academic readers in the respective fields of Lacan and Joyce studies, including psychoanalysts in practice and training, as well as researchers and students in psychoanalytic and modern literary studies.

About the Author:

Colette Soler has been practicing and teaching psychoanalysis since 1975, most recently in the context of the School of the Forums of the Lacanian Field (Paris), which she founded. She began analytic training following an encounter with the teaching of Jacques Lacan. Her first areas of study were philosophy and psychopathology, and she has taught both subjects at university level.
