This book explores the concept of desire through psychoanalytic theory (in the work of Freud and Lacan), in feminist theory, and in contemporary critical theory and literature. The book examines what the author terms "critical scenes of desire" in literary and artistic examples in order to argue that desire, as a concept, allows for moments of production and transformation. It examines the way we read for desire and argues that the concept of desire can be figured in these readings as progressive and transformative.
