Deadly Desire: A Psychoanalytical Reading of Desire and Death in the Poetry of Dylan Thomas
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Dylan Thomas' work is often explored in light of the poet himself, and he has been referred to as modernism's l'enfant terrible or even described as a late romanticist. The aim in this essay is to explore the poetry without regard to his personal life as well as highlight previously ignored oedipal elements in said poetry. The main goal is to assert Thomas' place amongst the modernist literati, of which most were heavily influenced by Freud, as well as to be an acknowledgement of his work without considering his biography.
