Murray Krieger: a reader. no longer a guy who trifles round with literature.
I can't do the fellow justice. here's an excerpt from his preface:

and of evaluating the quantity of their dominance over the
work and the world—becomes specific in The vintage imaginative and prescient,
while its use in The Tragic imaginative and prescient is implicit in simple terms. I try out to
justify it as a technique in my advent to the later quantity
and write my Epilogue to emphasize this harmony of approach
and to make transparent its software to every one of the works or
authors I deal with. in reality, maybe to stress the conformity of
this moment quantity to the procedure of the first, I summarize
retrospectively (pp. 19-21 of The vintage imaginative and prescient) the grasp-
metaphors of the works handled in The Tragic imaginative and prescient. notwithstanding
I am confident that my summaries emerged out of these
earlier analyses, they have been no longer as transparent to me initially as they
came to be as soon as my strategy crystallized with the writing of
The vintage Vision.

Moreover, in support of a methodology attempting to theorize (epithymize) repulsion, this stage includes an "oral-sadistic" phase concurrent with teething in which the activity of biting and devouring implies a destruction of the object; "as a corollary of this we find the presence of the phantasy of being eaten or destroyed by the mother" (288). Psychoanalysis defines the element of phantasy life that is involved in personality formation in terms of the functioning of the erotogenic zones (including especially those sensory organs excluded from the philosophemes).
