Sample text

Language defines us, and imposes its own limitations, but only through language can we be freed from a false, imaginary concept of ourselves. In the symbolic, we can escape the oppressive identity established during the mirror stage. In poetry, we subvert the law that imprisons our experience in cliché, where we fall victim to the master signifiers imposed on us through social and parental expectations. Where the moi self accepts master narratives and adapts the kind of personal complaisance and apathy that allow for injustice and violence, or forms attachments to ideologies that cause suffering, je is free and proactive, recognizing and analyzing problems, and seeking solutions on both a personal and social level.

Artists express the dissatisfaction with the external world of the reality principle—a dissatisfaction with the renunciation of primal urges. Art reaches people, according to Freud, because this dissatisfaction is universal to all humans. In this sense, art offers recognition and potentially greater awareness of the human condition, but also allows for a gratification of primal instincts that we typically repress. Formal regression, which takes place in dreams as well as in poetry, deals specifically with primary and secondary processes of expression.

Lacan uses metaphor to discuss the disconnect between human experience and expression due to the limits in the symbolic. Metaphor, he says, rips “the signifier from its lexical connections” (218). In Lacan, however, this acceptance of inner conflict that comes from an acknowledgment of the nature of the symbolic is the very thing that opens up the subject and allows for renewal. Poetry gives us the best linguistic form through which to explore our inner selves because it opens the self up to new and multiple possibilities of meaning.
