Sample text

In these books Freud proposes a collective archaic memory in the human psyche that resembles Jung’s collective unconscious while being much more exclusively sexual. Since the split between Freud and Jung the archetypal theory of a collective unconscious has been proposed only by the Jungians, while post-Freudians tend to pass over Freud’s two books on collective archaic memory as aberrant. Freud’s own example, however, indicates that there is nothing in Freudian theory intrinsically hostile to the concept of a collective unconscious.

Psychoanalytic Perspectives 23 Jung’s charge that Freud projects adult psychology onto the infant psyche is a serious one. If Jung is correct, much Freudian and postFreudian psychoanalytic theory is vitiated. The debate about infant sexuality and the early psychosexual stages of development may be incapable of resolution in real-life terms, so great are the difficulties of research into infant and young child psychology, thoughts, dreams, self-awareness and understandings of the world. The debate loses its relevance, however, when psychoanalytic theory is used as a tool in literary criticism, as in this book.

In “The Ego and the Id”, Freud speaks of the ego itself as partly unconscious: “The ego is not sharply separated from the id; its lower portion merges into it” (Freud, “The Ego and the Id”, 24). 22 Stuckness in the Fiction of Mervyn Peake constant threat from the unconscious;32 repression is for him a necessary defence for both the individual and social good. The Jungian shadow, in contrast, complements the conscious part of the psyche, which can gradually become more whole by integrating repressed contents of the shadow into consciousness.
