Just talk : narratives of psychotherapy by Lilian R Furst( )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in English and held by 2,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While Countless Memoirs have been written about depression and therapy, no one has examined how the "talking cure" of psychotherapy is presented in novels and other works of literature. Beginning with an overview of the principles of psychotherapy and its growing use as a treatment for mental and emotional disorders, Lilian R. Furst addresses the patient's view of the value of talk. Furst examines such well-known works as Roth's Portnoy's Complaint, Plath's The Bell Jar, and Lodge's Therapy, as well as lesser-known novels, to discuss how patients react to psychotherapy as a cure for mental and emotional disorders
Idioms of distress : psychosomatic disorders in medical and imaginative literature by Lilian R Furst( )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,807 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This interdisciplinary study examines the enigmatic category of psychosomatic disorders as articulated in medical writings and represented in literary works of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Six key works are analyzed: Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, Emile Zola's Therese Raquin, Thomas Mann's Buddenbrooks, Arthur Miller's Broken Glass, Brian O'Doherty's The Strange Case of Mademoiselle P., and Pat Barker's Regeneration. Each is a case study in detection as the hidden sources of bodily ills are uncovered in intra- or interpersonal conflicts such as guilt, family tensions, and marital discord. The book fosters a better understanding of these puzzling disorders by revealing how they function simultaneously as masks and as manifestations of inner suffering."--Jacket

Random destinations : escaping the Holocaust and starting life anew by Lilian R Furst( )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book argues that fiction, by taking ordinary escapees' difficulties into account, paradoxically offers a subtler and truer picture than sociological studies that have tended to foreground the successes of a few outstanding individuals."--Jacket

Realism( Book )

10 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Realism is one of the most common terms in the critical vocabulary, yet has been described as a 'monster with many heads desperately in need of disentangling'. Professor Furst's collection is ideally placed to help the student understand its complexities and the range of responses it has evoked. She begins with the reflections of such classic 'realist' writers as Balzac and Henry James which provide a context for a series of major twentieth-century readings. After this overture the curtain is raised with contributions from humanist, Marxist, structuralist, rhetorical, reader-oriented, psychoanalytic, deconstructionist and feminist criticism, including excerpts from an international range of critics such as George Lukacs, Roland Barthes, David Lodge and J. Hillis Miller. A substantial Introduction, Headnotes and a Glossary of Terms provide a wider context for the essays and explain terms that may be unfamiliar to the student. A selective annotated Bibliography provides a guide to further reading"--Back cover
