Ashford ENG 438 Week 5 Discussion Psychological Analysis
Psychological Analysis. 1st Post Due by Day 3. Lynn ends Chapter 7 of Texts and contexts: Writing about
literature with critical theory by stating, “Psychological theories ought to encourage you to be creative in speculating about the motivations of characters, authors, or readers” (2011, p. 200). How does basic knowledge of Freud’s theories (and other well-known psychological theorists) aid in critical creativity and bring about a potentially richer analysis? Support your assertions with clear reasoning and examples.
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
