This paper unpacks some of the psychoanalytic associations of haunting to suggest that psychoanalysis engages more fully with haunting than critics allow. It asks questions about what it is that haunts psychoanalysis and also what might be tangible in the vertical and horizontal dimensions of haunting with which psychoanalysis deals. It finds that something passes through psychoanalysis as a kind of smoke, material yet not quite graspable; and that this has some troubling effects.
