This exceptional work thus clarifies many misconceptions about psychoanalytic theory, furnishes unique insight into what Lacan call the 'time of analysis, ' and grants a clearer understanding of the relationship between language and the unconscious.

Review quote

"Represents decades of clinical meditation on two analyses of very young children conducted in the early 1950s by Rosine Lefort... Anyone interested in Lacan's psychoanalytical theories should not fail to read these revealing clinical studies by one of his most authoritative and lucid interpreters. Readers who have been put off by Lacan's difficulty will find this book especially rewarding." -- Herman Rapaport, author of Between the Sign and the Gaze
