Drawing the Line

Drawing the Line The Father Reimagined in Faulkner, Wright, O'Connor and Morrison Doreen Fowler

In an original contribution to the psychoanalytic approach to literature, Doreen Fowler focuses on the fiction of four major American writers-William Faulkner, Richard Wright, Flannery O'Connor, and Toni Morrison-to examine the father's function as a ""border figure."" Although the father has most commonly been interpreted as the figure who introduces opposition and exclusion to the child, Fowler finds in these literary depictions fathers who instead support the construction of a social identity by mediating between cultural oppositions. The new theoretical model that Fowler develops for the father's mediating role in initiating gender, race, and other social differences shows not only how psychoanalytic theory can be used to interpret fiction and cultural history but also how literature and history can reshape theory.
