A study of the psychodynamic role of shame in Melville's work, with detailed readings of Moby-Dick, Pierre, and Billy Budd, drawing on the work of theorists such as Heinz Kohut, Silvan Tomkins, and Donald Nathanson to challenge to contemporary reliance on an often abstract poststructuralist model of psychoanalysis. For those interested in Melville's work and in psychoanalytic and psychological approaches to literature. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
