Freudian Stages of Development
Psychoanalytical Literary Theory
Carl Jung
Sigmund Freud
What is psychoanalytical literary theory?
Certain principles of psychology, usually based on the work of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung, applied to several aspects of literature (the story, or the author, for example) to cull certain desires and anxieties, which may be the author's projections or tools used by the author in order to make a statement.
Psychoanalysis Examples:
Jacques Lacan (1901-1981)
Post-Freudian psychoanalytic theorist, focused on language and language-related issues
Freud tried to find "natural" causes for sexual development, Lacan offered a more linguistic model
Emphasized the ideological structures that allow humans to understand their relationships with others
