Sample text

Freud's principle of reality modifies, dominates and regulates the pleasure/pain principle, and so compels the human urges for fulfillment to go by detours and postponements, obstacles set by the external universe and by society. I would say that Freud, in his writing, takes up three very different rhetorical stances towards the reality principle: economic, topographical, and dynamic. In the economic tonality, free energy is transmuted into bound energy by the reality principle. From a topographical viewpoint, the reality principle finds its home in the preconscious-conscious system of the psyche, as opposed to the unconscious.

It is with movement, with the passage and dissolution of impressions, images, sensations, that analysis leaves offthat continual vanishing away, that strange, perpetual weaving and unweaving of itself. It might well be a more powerful and subtle version of Lindsay's Crystalman or Gangnet speaking to Maskull, as they wait for the blue sun of Alppain to rise, bringing Maskull's death. Lindsay, like Pound and Stevens, must have read Pater's first essay Diaphaneite, where the artist is called a crystal man, transparent and Apollonian, more than human in his perfection.
