The Subjectivity Effect in Western Literary Tradition free pdf Joel Fineman was considered one of the most brilliant literary critics of his generation, gifted in doing what the Russian formalists called "making strange." His essays are among the strongest demonstrations of how structures -- whether linguistic, visual, or architectural -- generate large and elaborate systems of meaning. Using examples drawn from literature -- Chaucer, Shakespeare, Oscar Wilde -- Fineman creates parables of how language has come to constitute the modern subject (ourselves) as a set of its "effects."Combining formidable learning with theoretical sophistication that is at once philosophical, linguistic, and psychoanalytical, Fineman draws from the most familiar work verbal details that lead to startling new interpretations, challenging Freud or making original applications of Lacan. The repercussion of his writings on theory and on nonliterary discourse is considerable, particularly among critics engaged in showing how artistic practice can be understood, structurally, to signify.Joel Fineman was Professor of English Literature at the University of California at Berkeley.The Essays: The Structure of Allegorical Desire.
