Applications of Psychoanalysis
THIS GUIDE TO
THEORY, I have tried,
when possible, to offer a certain consistency to the applications by
analyzing the same material from different theoretical perspectives.
As in the introductions to Gender and Sex, New Historicism, Marxism,
and Poststructuralism, I here offer a reading of two sonnets by Spenser.
I chose the sonnet form since its size makes it easy to reproduce on
the web page and its complexity exemplifies the extent to which even
a small literary work can be unpacked in interesting and multiple ways
by using the theoretical lenses at our disposal. When possible, I have
also provided a second application through a reading of the Dürer
image associated with the given section of this Guide to Theory. For
the applications, click on the images to the left.
