What is the Psychological Critical Perspective?

I have to write an essay about a play I read using this perspective and I am not sure how to go about it.

Thank you for any help!

    What play?

    "Trifles" by Susan Glaspell

    I tried to Google this for information, but I think I got even more confused.

    OK, I remember this play now.

    The author had written this same story up as a short story (and later turned it into a play). The short story's title was "A Jury of her Peers," and it's interesting to think about who really are her peers.

    Her peers, of course, are the women who stay in the kitchen -- not the men. How would men understand why she did what she did?

    Think about the differences:
    1. What do the women look for that is/are different from what the men look for?
    2. What is the difference between the morality of the women and the morality of the men?

    And then you might think about the title -- "Trifles." What do the men think are trifles? Do the women think the same way?

    What do the "gloomy kitchen" and the caged bird symbolize?
