A pschoanalytic approach to the reading of literature views conflict and character of any literary work as a reflection of the needs,emotions,status of mind and subconcious desires of the author.By extension,in literature,this approach tries to explain why Oedipus kills he's father where as Hamlet delays killing he's uncle [CLAUDIUS] even after he is convinced that it was he who killed king Hamlet[he's father].As a reader therefore you will understand the author's psychological needs but also those of yourself. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Explain by making a direct reference to other literary approaches
