Mourning Becomes Electra is a tragic play, which has revenge as its main theme. It tells about the revenge of its main character (Lavinia Mannon) towards her mother (Christine Mannon) for murdering her father (Ezra Mannon). The term of revenge here is defined as a deliberate punishment or injury inflicted in return for what one has suffered. I am interested in story, which generally describes Lavinia?s revenge. Lavinia?s action of revenge brings some consequences to her life, which leads her to have a mournful life. Therefore, in this study, I would like to find out the effects of Lavinia?s revenge. The purpose of this study is to identify the effects of Lavinia?s revenge on her life. In order to analyze the effects of Lavinia?s revenge, I will use literary approach with its tools, characterization and conflict. Besides, some psychological concepts such as guilt, anxiety and frustration are also used as the supporting concepts in the analysis. Through the analysis, I find out some problems, which are faced by Lavinia as the effects of her revenge. She feels guilty although she has tried many things to avoid facing the reality of her guilt. In addition, she feels anxious that people surround her will discover everything she has done in the past and that will make them condemn and hate her. Moreover, she also becomes frustrated in her effort to pursue happiness in life by canceling her marriage with Peter as she realizes that her past always haunts her and if someday Peter finds it out, it will bring about separation with Peter. Finally, I conclude that Lavinia?s guilty feeling, anxiety and frustration are the effects of her revenge and these effects, which make her unable to obtain happiness in life, are actually the consequences that she has to face for the rest of her life.

A Study on the main character’s Anxiety in Ann Widdecombe’s “An Act of Treachery”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — dvanhlast @ 7:31 am


An Act of Treachery is a novel created by one of British modern writers namely Ann Widdecombe. Although she is best known as a member of the Parliament, but she is concerned about many issues. An Act of Treachery is her third novel set during the Second World War. This novel is dealing with the role of the family. Thus, I am interested to take its dominant theme about the relationship between parents and children. There are some different parenting styles used by parent. Surely each style brings effect to children. However, in my analysis, I will only focus on Catherine as the main character who experiences psychological problem because of her authoritarian parents. In short, authoritarian parents described as people who tell “you must do it because I say so” become the main cause of Catherine’s anxiety. Therefore, I want to find the family values that exactly cause Catherine’s psychological problem and the ways she overcome her problems. To meet my aim, I need the description of anxiety, authoritarian parenting style and its effects. In addition, I use psychological approach with the help of the theory of defense mechanisms in order to analyze Catherine’s ways to deal with her psychological problems. Catherine uses compensation, fantasy, and displacement as her defense mechanism to cope with her uncomfortable condition. However, these mechanisms have ruined her and create another new problem. Besides, Catherine’s way to cope with her psychological problems is considered as “an act of treachery”. She is called a traitor because of her love to an enemy to shift her needs of her parents’ affection. Thus, I am really interested in finding the effects of her ineffective defense mechanisms to her life. I need the description of depression that will help me to achieve my purpose. Through this analysis, we will learn and understand that authoritarian parenting style will give bad effects to children and may lead to rebel. Unfortunately, most parents are using this style because of their high expectations and their excessive love to their children. This is an up to date topic because the issue naturally happens to every family. It can be a picture to help parents to maintain an ideal way of communication with their children.

A Study on Heathcliff’s anxiety and his defense mechanisms as seen in Emily Bronte’s wuthering heights


In this thesis, I discuss the novel Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte. I choose the work of Emily Bronte for several reasons. Firstly, I choose her because she has a good reputation as a fine author. Secondly, I choose her because she has a unique background that increases my curiosity to make an analysis on her work. Then, my interest in discussing psychological problems encourage me to make an analysis on her novel Wuthering Heights, which has a problematic psychological story. This study deals with the main character?s anxiety, and I am curious to know about the causes of the main character?s anxiety and his defense mechanism as the ways to protect his ego from the unpleasant memory. In the analysis, I use Sigmund Freud?s theory of anxiety and defense mechanism. I also use library research and data collection from the Internet. Then, I use the data collection, combined with Freud?s theory about anxiety for the analysis of the problem. Finally, I find that the main character, Heathcliff, suffers from anxiety because of the painful emotional experience of being rejected by his surroundings. Furthermore, this unpleasant memory leads Heathcliff?s to fear of rejection. When Heathcliff accepts rejection from other people, his ego will undergo from the pressure of the external world and experience fear of rejection. However, Heathcliff will automatically do defense mechanism to satisfy his ego and overcome the fear of rejection.
