Example text

The return of the repressed maternal body in literature, culture, and the individual psyche threatens the borders of the XXXII – INTRODUCTION always precarious status quo and thereby opens up the possibility of transformation, even revolution. Unlike Freud, who attributes socialization to the paternal function and castration threats and ignores the function of the mother as anything other than the primary (phallic) object, Kristeva emphasizes the importance of the maternal function in social development.

Klein’s thesis that ambivalence, and the subsequent splitting of the mother into good and bad, is a defense against ambiguity is suggestive in terms of our analysis of Wlm noir. In Noir Anxiety, we show how the threat of lost boundaries and blurred borders between races, sexes, and origins results in the anxiety manifest in Wlm noir. One defense against this anxiety is ambivalence or the polarization of the ambiguity into extremes that can easily be located and can help reestablish lost boundaries: black or white, masculine or feminine, familiar or foreign.
