Between the Sign and the Gaze (Paperback)Herman Rapaport (author)
- Publisher out of stock
A woman turns into a piece of furniture (Theodor Fontane's Effi Briest); a writer of children's books takes photos of naked little girls (Lewis Carroll); Mont Blanc becomes the maternal breast (Shelley); Hamlet mistakes Ophelia for a phallus (Lacan's Hamlet seminar); and mom turns out to have thermonuclear arms (Laurie Anderson's United States). Reviewing the ways in which women have been fantasized in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Western culture, Herman Rapaport offers a series of brilliant insights into the concept of the fantasm in modern art.

"Rapaport's highly performative book directs its analytical energy to an analysis of the fantasm, the representational field that remains folded 'between' the 'sign and the gaze' and their frequent discussion."-- Timothy Murray, Cornell University * SubStance *
