Jacques Lacan "Seminar on The Purloined Letter"

Lacan's reading of Edgar Alan Poe's short story "The Purloined Letter". We will read passages of the text and possibly attempt to investigate one of Lacan's catch-phrases "a letter always arrives at its destination".

Reading the short story or the wikipedia entry encouraged but not at all necessary.

The essay is uploaded on files:
