Summary

The chapter works, step by step, through the problem of reading as Joyce constructs it, using Kleinian psychoanalytic theory to explicate the structure of the problem and where its solutions lead. In the literature, Kleinian and Lacanian theory are almost never brought into contact; this chapter offers a new comparison of the theories, both for readers of each theory and for readers of Joyce. In addition, the chapter furthers, and intensifies, the analysis of ‘The Dead’ as an invitation to paranoid reading, and it traces the ways Joyce’s ‘The Sisters’ invites the reader into a position of paranoid complicity.
