James's tales fail to mediate the problems of material possession through the epistemological quest, in other words, because in these texts 'knowledge' (or moral understanding, which presumes the recognition of difference) proves antithetical to the possession of objects imagined as libidinally
invested inalienable properties.
Intra-psychically the experience was wholly real: qua the spirit imago QANG effectively became libidinally
disinvested (decathected) from his treasured feminine object and it stopped appearing and narcissistically-libidinally feeding him.
Thus, for the subject, the body from the word go is a signifier, a primary--since libidinally
invested--metaphor for the subject's existence outside (at least partially) the realm of nature, of the real.
More so than any other image of Held I've seen, this costume suggests just how libidinally
suggestive it probably was for a "white" chorus girl to repeatedly deploy "black" messages-vocally and physically-in whiteface.
In these at first glance innocuous picture books, the pagan energy that has ruled postwar America comes roaring back, making the Waldo series easily the most libidinally
explosive books since Goodnight Moon.
My affiliation with Barthes will itself signify my understanding and support of the avant gardist notion of sociopolitical change through libidinally

Neil Corcoran in English Poetry Since 1940 (1993), has argued that the "notoriously varied" force of Thom Gunn's work only assumes a certain coherence if he is read as an "exceptionally libidinous writer." However, despite Corcoran's otherwise libidinally
correct reading of Gunn, it must be said that Gunn's Collected Poems does much more than just venture out of some "exceptionally" libidinal closet.
In Eurocentric texts that reflect aggression against Africans, there are references to justified counter-aggression, but if they are present these acts are libidinally
The crisis of equivalence that is set in motion by Agamemnon's refusal of ransom for Chryseis is finally resolved, at least for the purposes of poetic closure, by Achilleus's acceptance of ransom for Hektor's dead body.(12) We may reconstruct the underlying logic of this series in terms of an initial situation involving possession of an object, one that is libidinally
cathected (a woman or friend); followed by the loss of this object, against the will of the possessor and without compensation; after which compensation is required, either through vengeful aggression against a substitute object that comes into one's possession (the living or dead body of the enemy), or through the option that is so hard to come by in the Iliad, acceptance of apoina as conciliating reparation.
Rubinfine, the real or perceived loss of a loved (libidinally
cathected) object is at first experienced by the forsaken subject in terms of the frustration of its needs and wishes, a frustration which, when prolonged, leads to anxiety and anger.
Singer's gentle heroes, they depict instead the multifarious ways in which muscular, tough-talking, straight-shooting Jews polish off the oily, disreputable, libidinally
who stands apart from his egoistic or managerial self yet remains libidinally
connected to it" (80).
