The Influence of Psychoanalysis on Literary Criticism in France (1914-1939)
The monograph discusses the presence of psychoanalysis in the French literary criticism in the years 1914–1939. The analysis of critical works written in this period and relating to psychoanalysis reveals a clear evolution within this methodological orientation – from the first, often superficial attempts at transplanting Freud’s method directly to the discourse on literature, to mature critical proposals only referring to psychoanalysis or adapting it creatively to their own purposes.
Keywords: psychoanalysis, literary criticism, France, Freud’s theory, interwar period.
