Author Comment
Subject: conversations between poetry and psychoanalysis
Fine, daring session. Ostriker's and Akhtar's comments illuminated the permeable boundaries between creative and analytic interpretation and expression. I hope we will have many such MLA sessions that open conversations between psychoanalysis and creative work and artists.
