Format: Paperback
I'm surprised no one has reviewed and praised this book yet. Close Reading and introductory Freudian Psychoanalysis are here combined in a fluid manner accessible to most everyone literate with a willingness to persist.

When I came across it by chance as an undergrad, I was immediately charmed by noticing that two of my favorite pieces of literature are here analyzed: Matt Arnold's "Dover Beach" and the "Tomorrow and tomorrow" speech from Macbeth. I spent some happy summer hours with this book. It was sometimes quite scary: what you write can reveal so much about you. After seeing this demonstrated, how could I dare to let a single small sentence out into the world for all prying eyes to scrutinize? Fortunately, I am much more orally deprived than anal retentive. I just had to slurp it all in.

Language is oceanic, has many currents, and this book is an excellent intro to one current of interpretation that can take you down to the life underneath. Explore.

Thinking, as Hannah Arendt said, is conversation in the head. And that means language. Some internal conversation about language is unavoidable for whoever wants to think. This book is a spur toward that.
