  • Welcome to Issue 18 of The Letter, Irish Journal for Lacanian Psychoanalysis.


    Excerpt from the Editorial:


    "Oliver Hardy sits at the piano singing:


    I love you! I love you! I love you!


    You are the ideal of my dreams.


    I always knew It would be someone like you.


    I’ve loved you forever it seems.


    Turning to Stanley Laurel, he confides that the moment has come. He is about to marry his ‘Sweetheart’. He shows his friend a picture of the lucky ladv and sings her praises. She’s an angel, – ‘loved by everyone, but mine all mine’. A knock on the door. A letter arrives. Oliver can’t find his glasses so he asks Stanley to read the letter aloud to him …, which he does! It’s bad news:


    ‘My darling, gracious Oliver,


    I have decided that all is over between us.


    Your one-time Sweetheart’.


    Oliver crumbles, his world shattered.


    Stanley (looking up from the letter and amazed at his friend’s miserable demeanour):


    ‘Why Ollie! What’s the matter?’"
