“The volume is exemplary. The essays collected in it illuminate a range of subject—film and film history, literature and literary history, the figure of the blind man in Enlightenment writing, ‘love at first sight,’ Augustine on intellectuals and sexuality—and they all work together to explicate three crucial and difficult terms in the Lacanian vocabulary: object, voice, gaze.”—Marshall Grossman, University of Maryland
“A marvelous collection of essays written by some of the most prominent figures working today from within a Lacanian paradigm. Though centered on the objects of the voice and the gaze and their status within the experience and structure of love, these essays range over an amazing topography of issues, from penitentiary fantasy and utilitarianism, to film theory and false memory syndrome.”—John Mowitt, University of Minnesota
