Doreen Fowler's Faulkner: The Return of the Repressed is only the second book-length pychoanalytic interpretation of Faulkner's oeuvre and the first to be predicated on Lacanian theory as modified by Kristeva and Chodorow. Fowler exposes psychic conflicts that drive Faulkner's fiction and posits from them an underlying tension between the desire for difference and wholeness, between the mother and the father, between the living body and death.

Doreen Fowler, Associate Professor of English at the University of Kansas, is the author of Faulkner's Changing Vision: From Outrage to Affirmation.Review:
Fowler (Univ. of Kansas) explores the role of the father figure in writing by four American authors. In her analysis of these works, the author not only crosses the "boundaries" of critical theories, focusng primarily on psychoanalysis and feminism, but also discusses ways that father figures themselves create "boundaries" that act as both links and borders.(Choice)
