Abstract:The dissertation proposes, on the one hand, to provide a rationale for the applicability of a Jungian-derived psychological approach to literature and, on the other hand, to introduce, by way of illustration, the methodology of a Jungian literary approach.
Chapter I, "Introduction", reviews the interrelationship between literature and psychology. Chapter II, "Jungian Psychological Principles and the Creative-Formative Process", presents the rationale for a Jungian psychological approach to literature by viewing the creative-formative process, inspiration, and symbol formation as psychological phenomena. Chapter III, "Lorca's Theory on the Creative-Formative Process and the Trilogy", discusses his writings as parallels to Jungian theory in order to establish a link between theory and practice. Chapters IV, V, and VI analyze and interpret Bodas de sangre, Yerma, and La casa de Bernarda Alba, respectively. Chapter VII, "Observations", summarizes the content of the dissertation. The Bibliography contains entries from standard and non-standard literary and psychological sources on the theory and application of a Jungian-derived literary approach.
