Art and Literature through a Psychoanalytic Lens: A Course in Applied Psychoanalysis
601 W Rosemary Street
Chapel Hill NC, 27516
Wednesday, March 15, 2017, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
Art and Literature through a Psychoanalytic Lens:
Class participants will be encouraged to apply their developing psychoanalytic skills of observation, empathy, and imagination by immersion in the discussion of various works of art and literature. These will include Sophocles' Antigone; Keats' La Belle Dame sans Merci; Shakespeare's Richard III; the Brothers Grimm's Hansel and Gretel, Little Red Riding Hood, and Cinderella; James Joyce's The Dead; and Carr's A Month in the Country. Accompanying these texts, participants will read articles on the methodology of applied psychoanalysis as well as examples of it by Freud, Jacob Arlow, David Werman, Francis Baudry, Renato Almansi, Edith Jacobson, and Bruno Bettleheim. If possible, several of our classes will involve a group viewing of a movie followed by the class discussion. Movies under consideration include Richard III, Ordinary People, and John Houston's film of Joyce's The Dead. Woody Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanors is also a possibility.
