Recommended General Works:

An Introduction To The Work Of Jacques Lacan - Texts By Jacques Lacan

Ecrits: A Selection (2004), translated by Bruce Fink (W.W. Norton)

This represents a collection of some of Lacan's seminal articles selected from the French text Ecrits. The articles contained in this selection are for the most part complex and densely argued texts presented against the backdrop of Lacan's ongoing seminar. Some readers may therefore find it more accessible, in the first instance, to approach Lacan's work through a reading of his seminars.
