Feminism’s relationship with Psychoanalysis is simple in outline but complex in nuance. The relationship can be said to begin with Kate Millet’s Sexual Politics in 1969, which condemns Freud as a prime source of the patriarchal attitudes against which Feminist’s must fight. The influence of this view within feminism is still very strong, but Freud was defended in a series of important books in subsequent years, notably, Juliet Mitchell’s Psychoanalysis and Feminism in 1974. This paper analyses the female psyche in the play Hayavadana.
