Write an essay on ONLY ONE of the following topics:
1. Narrate and interpret one of your dreams, using Freud?s discussion of dreams in An Outline of Psychoanalysis. Proceed in three stages. First, narrate your dream in detail; that is, narrate the ?manifest content? of the dream. This narration will serve as the ?text? for your analysis. Second, relate as many features of the dream as possible to its ?sources? the various parts of your psyche. For example, you should describe which features represent deep drives from the id, and which ones represent unfulfilled wishes from the ego (pre-conscious memory residues from the previous day or from long ago). Third, explain how your ego transformed these drives and wishes (the ?latent content?) into the narrative of the dream (the ?manifest content?) by means of ?distortion? or ?dream work?: that is, condensations and displacements.
2. Use Freud to analyze Mr. Faber's motivations in Because of Romek, and, if you choose, his lecture. Describe how Freud would understand his will to survive, his interaction with others, and his mission.
3. In Sartre's No Exit, Garcin exclaims toward the end of the play, "A man is what he wills himself to be." Suppose the claim were: "A woman is what she wills herself to be." How might the limits of freedom and control put forth by Woolf and Beauvoir modify this claim?
4. Analyze the relationship between Electra and Clytemnestra in Sartre's The Flies.
5. Use Beauvoir's discussion of "the Other" in The Second Sex to analyze Freud's discussion of women in An Outline of Psychoanalysis.
6. Describe how Beauvoir's The Second Sex is an existential analysis. Do this by introducing and defining the major categories of existentialism that inform her work, and then giving citing specific examples from her book.
