Narcissus on the text: Psychoanalysis, exegesis, ethics
Bringing to bear the concepts of Lou Andreas-Salomé,Julia Kristeva, and Jacques Lacan upon Ovid's Narcissus tale (Met 3.339-510) helps us see how the infatuated boy's dénouement makes the irrational intrude upon rational discourse in such a way as to rock unexamined assumptions about the autonomous self and its encounter with the possibility of meaning in the act of reading signs. ©The Classical Association of Canada/La Sociét́ canadienne des études classiques 2008.
