Freud’s Dream-work

November 2nd, 2011
Two concrete tasks we should perform when treating literary tasks based on Freud’s point of view in his Dream Work would be:
    1)  When reading a literary text if the ideas are expressed in abstract form, it is almost impossible to fully understand the literary text.  But, when the text is transformed into words that create an image and that are identifiable the reader can readily understand the written text.
    2)  When reading a literary text the reader should analyze the written words, the etymology of the words and their associations with what the author of the text is writing about.  The reader should not form his own concepts but concentrate on what the author’s ideas are and what he/she is writing about.

    I think you’re right with number 2–unlike the New Critics, a Freudian approach might wonder about how the author came to particular images or symbols.
