Psychoanalytic Criticism


Psychoanalytic CriticismPsychoanalytical criticism seeks to explore literature by examining how the following issues are represented:How human mental and psychological development occursHow the human mind worksThe root causes of psychological problemsHow the id, ego, and superego are represented


Psychoanalytic CriticismThis information can be used to analyze literature using two different approaches:Psychoanalysis of the author: this often requires research of the author’s life, but some academics make inferences based on the author’s writingPsychoanalysis of the character(s)


Freudian Criticism Based on the work of Sigmund Freud (1856–1939). Earliest application focused on the text as a window into the psyche of the author – dream analysisLater applied to character and reader analysis


The Id, the Ego, the Superego EGO ID SUPEREGO


The IDMade up of everything the Superego disapproves of, including rage, depression, “evil”, unchecked sexual desire, addiction, utter hedonism without restraint, etc. The oldest mental province in the human organism, present at birth, instinctual – the drive to survive and to procreate.Viewed ultimately as something that needs to be held in check.


The SUPEREGOThe mental province that responds to the demands of parental and immediate social influences (laws, religious morays, etc.) on behavior and propriety. The parental/patriarchal and authoritarian gaze that permeates and follows what you do from childhood into adulthood. Doing “what’s right” to the extreme.


The EGOThe intermediary between the Id’s desires and the external world containing all of its guidelines for behavior. The ego seeks to balance the demands of the Id with the restrictions of the Superego (cultural norms, rules, moral restrictions). Also referred to as the “Ideal Self” which attempts to repress unchecked Id’s desires while also allowing for acceptable levels of satisfying needs rooted in the Id.


Parental RelationshipsIn Freudian psychology, one’s relationship with one’s parents is the most significant determiner of how that person will relate with other humans throughout life.In general terms, we tend to seek life partners that resemble our opposite-sex parent, whether consciously or unconsciously.Freud believed the Id desired the destruction of the same-sex parent, and union with the opposite-sex parent. (Oedipus, Electra)


Psychoanalytical Critical QuestionsFor psychoanalytical criticism that focuses on the author:To what extent does the text reveal the author’s repressed desires?What conflicts exist among the author’s id, ego, and superego?Does the text indicate any problems in the author’s psychosexual maturation process (e.g. Oedipus Complex, oral fixation)?


Psychoanalytical Critical QuestionsFor psychoanalytical criticism that focuses on the character(s):In what way does the text reflect the psychosexual development of the character?Does the character demonstrate any neuroses or psychoses?Is the character’s behavior indicative of or influenced by repressed desires or conflicts among the id, ego, and superego?
