Slide 2

Outline Q & An on Freud and Lacan Art and therapy Kinds of Psychological Reactions and Disorder Edgar Allan Poe (2): (his bio audit ) " Tell-Tale Heart " Ligeia " Some psy. Understandings

Slide 3

Q & An on Freud and Lacan Why is Dream the regal street to our oblivious? Why is the oblivious organized like dialect? What " s the centrality of this view? What is Symbolic Order for Lacan? Is it all effective? How would we dissect a lit. content from a psychoanalytic perspective?

Slide 4

1. Suppression and Civilization Repression & Displacement ( elective ways to fulfill instinctual wants) ��  Civilization: The aftereffect of our change/sublimation of oblivious goals. E.g. " Mona Lisa " – two pictures of L " s first mother: one delicate and held, and the other exotic and enchanting. Side effects: the arrival of the stifled ��  Behaviors or real variations from the norm. Mental responses and disarranges

Slide 5

Psychoanalysis and Literature For Freud, dream resemble craftsmanship in light of the fact that both Fulfill wishes; Use procedures to beat the resistance of cognizance. Translation of Dream//Art: distinguish clashes of implications (where wish is gone up against by resistance) Ask the patient to make free affiliation (unraveling non-literal dialect and image through logical perusing) Is writing, then, to be dealt with as simply patients to be dissected?

Slide 6

Psychological responses & scatters Reactions: Fixation ��  Regression Compulsion to Repeat Sexual aberrance & Perversion Disorders: Neurosis Psychosis

Slide 7

Fixation and relapse The psychic inversion to youth wants. At the point when ordinarily working craving meets with capable outer deterrents, which forestall fulfillment of those goals, the subject once in a while relapses to a prior stage (eg. the mouth, the butt) in ordinary psychosexual advancement . ( source )

Slide 8

Compulsion to Repeat A great deal of side effects are dull in nature; Freud considers it to be the most broad character of our impulse; What " s rehashed is not simply want or the attractive; some of the time it is dread or disagreeable experience.

Slide 9

Perversion: 5 frames Freud: The quest for "abnormal" sexual items (or non-sexual organs) without restraint. five types of corruption dismissing the boundary of species (the bay amongst men and creatures), besides, by violating the obstruction against nauseate , ��  e.g. voyeur and egotist against interbreeding (the preclusion against looking for sexual fulfillment from close blood-relations),

Slide 10

Perversion: 5 frames 4. That against individuals from one's own sex 5. the exchanging of the part played by the privates to different organs and zones of the body " (Introductory Lectures 15.208) (Freud, Sigmund. The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud. Trans. James Strachey. 24 vols. London: Hogarth, 1953-74. )

Slide 11

Perversion: illustrations Desire fulfilled through being taken a gander at or looking ��  2. Grandstander: looks for a flawless affirmation of his longing in the yearning of the other ; the voyeur discovers the greater part of his craving in his looking . 5. a youthful youngster won't perceive any of these five focuses as anomalous — and just does as such through the procedure of instruction. Thus, he calls kids "polymorphously perverse" (Introductory Lectures15.209). (Freud, Sigmund. The Standard Edition of the Complete Psychological Works of Sigmund Freud. Trans. James Strachey. 24 vols. London: Hogarth, 1953-74. )

Slide 12

Neurosis Definition: the typical articulation of a psychical clash whose starting point lies in the subject " s youth memory (Laplanche 266); ��  entirely regular among us! side effects: a misrepresentation of ordinary examples of conduct. e.g. always checking the time or that entryways are bolted. On the other hand other fixation ceremonies; e.g. nervousness issue ��  fear; madness (now called transformation issue) e.g. over-eating (bulimia); ceasing eating (anorexia) For reference:

Slide 13

Psychosis Definition: The failure of a man to recognize what is genuine and what is fanciful. (Essential separation of the libidinal connection to reality.) Symptoms: mind flight, self-fancies E.g. schizophrenia and hyper wretchedness ( 躁鬱症 ). Freud: " in mental issues the inner self stifles part of the id out of devotion to reality, though in psychosis it gives itself a chance to be diverted by the id and confined from a piece of reality " (5.202).

Slide 14

Fetishism falls amongst depression and psychosis. A sexual connection to a lifeless question or a customarily agamic part of the human body. "The fetishist is the grown-up who, in light of his connection to the interest, is 'spared " from psychosis (which is the more average outcome of repudiation in grown-ups). . . . (Elizabeth Grosz Jacque Lacan: A Feminist Introduction p. 118) Freud: the obsession can " turn into the vehicle both of precluding and from securing asseverating the reality of mutilation " (5.203).

Slide 15

Fetishism (2) – for reference from Lacan Ecrit p. 197-98 The entire issue of the corruptions comprises in imagining how the tyke, in his connection to the mother, in his connection to the mother, a connection constituted in investigation not by his crucial reliance on her but rather by his reliance on her affection, that is to say, by the craving for her longing ,. . .recognizes himself with the fanciful question of this yearning in so far as the mother herself symbolizes it in the phallus .

Slide 16

Edgar Allan Poe An Artist with a Keen Awareness of Conflicting Desires

Slide 17

Edgar Allan Poe Bio: conceived in 1809; Father vanished when he was year and a half old; Pretty and virtuous mother kicked the bucket of utilization a year later; Married Virginia at 26 years old, when Virginia was 13 and as of now sickening. Virginia kicked the bucket of utilization 10 years after the fact.

Slide 18

Allan & the Women in Poe " s Life

Slide 19

" Tell-Tale Heart " : Questions Why does the storyteller need to murder the old man? Why is he annoyed with the last " s eye? How does the storyteller isn't that right? Why does the storyteller address " you " until the entry of the three policemen? Why is the qualification amongst franticness and intense listening to capacity vital for him? Is it true that he is frantic? What makes him admit toward the end? What does the title mean? Whose heart? Does the story pass on Poe " s quelled Oedipal seek?

Slide 20

The Eye and " I " storyteller The old man " s eye standard 2 - "Object there was none. Enthusiasm there was none . . . It was his eye! . . .light blue eye, with a film over it. " Called Evil Eye; vulture eye; Climax: " It was open — wide, totally open — and I became enraged as I looked upon it."

Slide 21

The Eye and " I " storyteller " I " being shaped in the reflect arrange; ��  enpowering Visual Perception: pleasurable; Induces dream ��  one reason for filmic speculations on spectatorship. Lacan: the dream (of the nearness of a lost phallus) is continually absent from what is seen; ref. " When, in adoration, I request a look, is significantly unacceptable and continually missing that—You never take a gander at me from the place from which I see you" "What I take a gander at is never what I wish to see" (Lacan 1977b. P. 103 qtd Wright 108)

Slide 22

The " Father " s " Eye & " I " storyteller Sympathy for the old man – p. 46 – standard. 3; the old man " s pulse/his own. Enchant into the primal scene and loathing the " father " s " absence of force.

Slide 23

His listening to capacity & what he hears The storyteller " s listening to: The ailment " had honed [his] faculties — not devastated — not dulled them. Most importantly was the feeling of listening to acute"

Slide 24

His listening to capacities & what he hears " a low, dull, brisk sound, for example, a watch makes when concealed in cotton " - fantasy; his own particular heart beat ��  feeling of blame; - the old man's heart, first heard truth be told and after that envisioned to be listened; - that of deathwatch insects (see p. 46 standard 2) - called so on the grounds that " it discharges a sound taking after the ticking of a watch, expected to anticipate the demise of somebody of the family in the house in which it is heard" (qtd Reilly)

Slide 25

His listening to capacities & what he hears Whatever he really listens, it demonstrates that he is steadily separated from reality;

Slide 26

Is he frantic? Does the story pass on Poe " s quelled Oedipal seek? Reilly: jumpy schizophrenia. Two sides of the storyteller: "very, horribly nervous," imprudent; Careful, understanding and plotting; (e.g. p. 45) Self-advocating completely through Claims that he is not distraught; Feels " control " and " triumph " on the eighth night; Gets the support of Death Agony of being giggled at drives him to admit

Slide 27

Is he frantic? Conclusion It is still his sense/hallucination of the overwhelming " social " that conveys him to first murder, to admit to the police himself and afterward recount the story to " you. " The old man is by all account not the only illustrative of social powers. (neighbors, the policemen, God, Death)

Slide 28

" Ligeia " : Plot Summary Ligeia recalled and portrayed: her family (last name overlooked), her external appearance, her conduct and her character attributes. (pp. 74-76) contrasted with figures of Greek mythology (Apollo,...), Egyptian Gods (Ashtophet) , creatures (gazelle) and alludes to other well known men (Homer, Lord Verulam, ...). He gets mo
