9780791439760: Scenes of Shame: Psychoanalysis, Shame, and Writing (Suny Series in Psychoanalysis and Culture) (Suny Series, Psychoanalysis & Culture)

The significance of shame as a critical human emotion has come to be recognized in the fields of psychoanalysis, psychotherapy, and psychology. Scenes of Shame brings this body of theory to bear on literary and philosophical representations of shame. The contributors explore the role of shame as an important affect in the psychodynamics of a wide range of literary and philosophical works, including essays on Kierkegaard, Hawthorne, George Eliot, Nietzsche, Lawrence, Faulkner, Sexton, and Toni Morrison. The book also includes an analysis of the problem of shame in student lifewriting in the classroom, and testifies to the importance of affect in philosophy and literature, as well as to the way in which imaginative writers can clarify and enrich our understanding of an emotion that, as Silvan Tomkins claims, "strikes deepest" into the human heart.

Review:

This book has something for everybody. On the one hand it introduces the reader to the depth and importance of an important emotion shame. On the other hand, this attention to shame suggests original approaches to the work of well-known poets, novelists, and philosophers. Marshall Alcorn, George Washington University
The topic is central to psychoanalytic studies and literary criticism. In fact, I see a good chance that this book could break new ground in criticism, thus becoming a frequently cited work. As I read the book, I realized how significant shame is in the work of many writers who are not even mentioned here e.g., Coleridge, Conrad, Dickens, and, most of all, Doestoevsky. Daniel W. Ross, Columbus State University"
