Body Dysmorphic Disorder in the Bluest Eye
Languages of publication
The present work aims at finding relevant correspondences between Body Dysmorphic Disorder and the literary context of this novel’s main character, Pecola. The creation of such strong interdependence between a literary character and a psychological phenomenon represents a challenge on account of their apparently disparate natures but is nevertheless an enterprise capable of offering great literary and artistic satisfaction to both the reader and the author.
