Web. 05 March, 2013. < http://www.iep.utm.edu/lacweb/#SH1b>. The framework of psychoanalytic theory is based largely on Freudian psychology. Freud, born in 1856, was not a literary theorist, but his research largely contributed to the way literary critics analyze both the story and author. Freud's ideas of the unconscious, including the theory of the id, superego, and ego, strive to explain human behavior. These concepts, when applied to literature, can help explain not only character motivation, but the thought process of the author as they unconsciously pour different aspects of their own personality into their characters. •Kristi Siegel.
