Abstract:   (2533 Views)
Little more than a century has gone by after the first applications of psychoanalytic and psychological approaches to literary criticism, however, even in this relatively shorter span, these approaches have been able to open up new perspectives in the analysis and critique of literary texts. In an analysis of three collections of short stories by the Persian writer (Shiva Moghanlou)that were published in a single volume titled The Wrong People , the author of this article, has attempted to analyze the influence of the writers subconscious on her writings, with a glance at a number of psychoanalytic literary criticism theories. This discussion revealed that the subconscious impact is manifested in recurring themes, techniques, metaphors and other features of the text. Among the most frequent themes in the writer's stories, one can mention the idea of human body, fearful and mysterious plots, revengeful romances, love, and loneliness. In terms of techniques, one could point to the postmodern playfulness, ambiguity, and word games included in the writing of the stories.
