Psychoanalytic Critique

I personally don’t like Freud. Every time I read his stuff he just seems like a jerk, but I can still see why what he wrote gained so much traction. By reading his works and ideas, specifically “Mourning and Melancholia” I could take a look at Hamlet’s actions as not just an incredibly angsty guy, but perhaps as someone who had a lot more going on in his brain.

My first draft involved a lot of me saying an idea and then giving myself a note to come back and say more about this later. My peer editor gave me a lot of ideas about what to say about the parts that I had left notes for myself to say more. Their ideas were incredibly helpful. As a result, my next draft looked like this.
