Literary Criticism and Psychoanalysis

Literary Criticism and Psychoanalysis merge in a field where the aesthetic word and aspects of Freud`s systematized theory (and successors) may interact and amplify the analitic/ interpretative universe of each one. The intention is to add psychoanalitic aspects, from the theoretical point of view, as one “knowledge” more for the reading of the literary work, which artistically transforms that perspective.
