In this reinterpretation of the history of fetishism as a concept, Marcia Ian traces the significance of the trope of the phallic mother from early psychoanalytic discourse through Klein, Kristeva, and Lacan; across key works of modernist literature by Eliot, Joyce, Genet, and others; and in recent feminist theory, gender theory, and postmodern critical theory.
