Theoretical understanding of perversion is neglected in analytical psychology, and narrowly developed in psychoanalysis, where it traditionally refers to sexual perversion. Etymological exploration of the word "perversion", including its use in religious, moral, sociological and legal contexts, reveals a wider meaning than that adopted in psychoanalysis. The aim of the author is to revise the psychoanalytic model through the introduction of Jungian concepts that extend the understanding of perversion beyond the bounds of sexuality to a more general relational context. By describing the development of psychoanalytic thinking on perversion in detail, the author is able to highlight the central differences between the Freudian and Jungian interpretive traditions and to explain why Jungian ideas on perversion have remained underdeveloped, leading to the absence of a unique or available Jungian contribution to the theory of perversion.

âeoeFor many serious readers,âe Robert Alter writes in his preface, âeoethe novel still matters, and I have tried here to suggest some reasons why that should be so.âe In his wide-ranging discussion, Alter examines the imitation of reality in fiction to find out why mimesis has become problematic yet continues to engage us deeply as readers. Alter explores very different sorts of novels, from the self-conscious artifices of Sterne and Nabokov to what seem to be more realistic texts, such as those of Dickens, Flaubert, John Fowles, and the early Norman Mailer. Attention is also given to such individual critics as Edmund Wilson and Alfred Kazin and to current critical schools. In Alter's essays, a particular book or movement or juxtaposition of writers provides the occasion for the exploration of a general intellectual issue. The scrutiny of well-chosen passages, the joining of images or themes or ideas, the associative and intuitive processes that lead to the right phrase and the right loop of syntax for the matter at hand-all these come together unexpectedly to illuminate both the text in question and the general issue. Recent discussions of mimesis in fiction generally proceed from a single thesis. By contrast, Motives for Fiction offers an empirical approach, attempting to define mimesis in its various guises by careful critical readings of a heterogeneous sampling of literary texts. Intelligent and good-humored, the book is also old-fashioned enough to wonder whether mimesis might not be a task or responsibility to which much contemporary fiction has not proved entirely adequate.

"Dieser Roman zeigt Howard Jacobson auf dem Höhepunkt seines Schaffens." (The Independent) Die Bewohner Port Reubens leben in scheinbarer Harmonie, sie hören nur noch Schnulzen und lesen kitschige Liebesromane, und nach dem schrecklichen Ereignis, über das nur als »Was geschah, falls es geschah« gesprochen wird, bekamen alle neue Namen. Kevern Cohen misstraut als Einziger dieser »großen Familie« und ihrer freiwilligen Ahnungs- und Meinungslosigkeit. Er ist ein Eigenbrötler, der die Bücher und Jazzplatten seines Vaters aufbewahrt hat und allein in einer Hütte auf den Felsen wohnt. Eines Tages wird ihm Ailinn Solomons vorgestellt, eine schwarzhaarige Schönheit, und die beiden fühlen sich sofort zueinander hingezogen. Doch Keverns Unbehagen wächst: Ist ihre Liebe wirklich nur aus ihren spontanen Gefühlen genährt, oder haben andere Interesse an ihrer Beziehung? Ist er nur paranoid, oder werden sie tatsächlich überwacht und sind Teil eines allumfassenden, perfekt ausgeklügelten Plans? Ein prophetischer Gesellschaftsroman, ein psychologisches Meisterwerk, das uns und dem aktuellen Zeitgeist unerbittlich den Spiegel vorhält.

This Perversion Called Love positions one of Japan's most canonical and best translated 20th century authors at the center of contemporary debates in feminism. Examining sexual perversion in Tanizaki's aesthetic essays, cultural criticism, cinema writings and short novels from the 1930s, it argues that Tanizaki understands human subjectivity in remarkably Freudian terms, but that he is much more critical than Freud about what it means for the possibility of love. According to Tanizaki, perversion involves not the proliferation of interesting gender positions, but rather the tragic absence of even two sexes, since femininity is only defined as man's absence, supplement, or complement. In this fascinating work, author Margherita Long reads Tanizaki with a theoretical complexity he demands but has seldom received. As a critique of the historicist and gender-focused paradigms that inform much recent work in Japanese literary and cultural studies, This Perversion Called Love offers exciting new interpretations that should spark controversy in the fields of feminist theory and critical Asian studies.
