"In other words, the man who is born into existence deals first with language, this is a given. He is even caught in it before his birth." —Jacques Lacan French psychiatrist and psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan introduced the idea that all humans have this sense of lack that they seek to overcome, and this idea is the inspiration of this collaborative poetry book. Divided into three chapters according to the three phases of Lacan's Mirror Stage—the Imaginary, the Symbolic and the Real—Into Other Worlds attempts to explore the several facets of existence, the universality of desire, and the physical, emotional and intellectual transformations of man through poetry.
