About this product
- DescriptionDesire in Language traces the path of an investigation, extending over a period of ten years, into the semiotics of literature and the arts. But the essays of Julia Kristeva in this volume, though they often deal with literature and art, do t amount to either literary criticism or art criticism. Their concern, writes Kristeva, remains intratheoretical: they are based on art and literature in order to subvert the very theoretical, philosophical, or semiological apparatus. Probing beyond the discoveries of Sigmund Freud, Jacques Lacan, Roman Jakobson and others, Julia Kristeva proposes and tests theories centered on the nature and development of the vel, and on what she has defined as a signifying practice in poetic language and pictural works. Desire in Language fully shows what Roman Jakobson has called Kristeva's genuine gift of questioning generally adopted 'axioms,' and her contrary gift of releasing various 'damned questions' from their traditional question marks.
- Author BiographyJulia Kristeva, internationally known psychoanalyst and critic, is Professor of Linguistics at the University de Paris VII.
