This essay represents the splintered ego in Lacanian terms. A trip through French Canada is the backdrop for Lacanian theories, internet representations of Lacan and films on paranoia. The writing ego being disillusioned with Lacanian thinking readdresses writing through poetry. Representations of the Titanic – viewed in the Halifax museum – is a metaphor for the writer eternally under siege and travelling through (mis)representations.
