"To this day they call him the Wolf-Man. But did anyone really know why? You will know it. What takes place here - I am talking about an event and a monument - is analogous to an archeological dig. A monumental text is exposed to an interpretation whose daring and effectiveness vie with each other." - Jacques Derrida "This book succeeds because of its very specific lexical interpretations coupled with a demonstration of how a genuine link between psychoanalysis and literary analysis can be established." - Paul de Man"
