2007 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This essay discusses the Oedipus complex within Malcolm, a character in V.C. Andrews’ Garden of shadows. The Oedipus complex is defined in the first chapter and in the second and third chapter the essay discusses Malmcolm’s relationship to women as well as men and how the relationships are connected to his unsolved Oedipus complex. Chapter three is finished by a comparison between Malcolm and the original Oedipus written by Sophocles in 430 B.C. As a conclusion the essay has argued that Malcolm could be called “the modern Oedipus” as he has got a lot of elements that are typical for the Oedipus complex.
