The Beatles were the most significant cultural phenomenon of their time, but what exactly did they signify? Using a psychoanalytic approach, The Beatles with Lacan attempts to answer this still relevant question. It argues that Beatlemania and the music of Lennon/McCartney highlighted the end of the Modern Age as it had been expressed in the ideals of the Enlightenment. The albums from Revolver (1966) to Abbey Road (1969) are seen collectively as the first popular post-modern classic of western music, and the Beatles themselves as cultural pioneers of enduring achievement.
