Beschreibung

A figure of reflexivity, narcissism describes a relation between self and other mediated through the mirror or reflection. Bringing the works of literary modernism and psychoanalysis together this book succeeds in enhancing our sense of both, and in clarifying the complex role of narcissism in our cultural narrative.
