Selected contents from this journal
Languages of publication
Psychoanalytical criticism has been dominated by two interpretative discourses that descend from Freud's classical psychoanalysis. This article presents an alternative to the post-Freudian consensus in the form of a new paradigm based on the insights and ideas of Erich Fromm. While the first of the two post-Freudian approaches is concerned with identifying the unconscious desire believed to hold a hermeneutical key to the understanding of the text, the other sees the work as a crystallization of unconscious structures of the mind. The third, alternative approach views the work as a manifestation of the idol against the background of the social unconscious.
