Literary Studies and Psychoanalysis: Methodological Aspects of Interaction
Keywords:literary studies, psychoanalysis, literary work with the psychoanalytic dominant, the method of free associations, dreams
The article discusses the specifics of the interaction of psychoanalysis and literary studies. It is proved that literary studies actively use fundamental psychoanalytic methods and techniques in decoding the mental unconscious of characters in literary works. Literary terms proposed for implementation and use – a literary work of psychoanalytic direction, a literary work with psychoanalysis elements, a literary work with thepsychoanalytic dominant orpsychoanalytic constructs certifying the integration of psychoanalysis theory into literary studies.
The use of certain aspects of psychoanalytic theory contributes to the literary interpretation of unconscious processes in the psyche of the author of the work and its characters, marked by various pathologies, deviations, neuroses, fears, etc. The article emphasizes that interpreting literary texts in the psychoanalytic aspect actualizes the method of free associations, close to the specific literary technique of the consciousness stream, as well as the specifics of interpretations of the dreaming discourse.
