Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Not an easy read, in fact it is to be studied rather than just casually read, but extremely helpful, and I would say even necessary, in approaching subversion of the subject. It is best to have some understanding of lacanian and freudian theory and psychoanalysis before starting this book, maybe having read your Bruce Fink introductory texts first, but clear and crisp as it takes your hand and walks you through early Lacan's thought. Having said that, I would absolutely not advise to start Lacan with his Ecrits, and this book does not expect you to be familiar with them. Stylistically, it is very well translated and a pleasure to work on it.
