By Jacqueline Schnurrenberger

Swiss degree Thesis from the 12 months 1997 within the topic English Language and Literature experiences - Literature, grade: 1,0, college of Zurich (Englisches Seminar), language: English, summary: Die vorliegende Arbeit stellt den Versuch dar, den Roman "The Wasp manufacturing unit" von Iain Banks als kritische postmoderne Relektüre von Sigmund Freuds Schriften zur Sexualität zu erforschen.
Postmoderne Ästhetik erweist sich als besonders brauchbar für solch eine Freud-Kritik, da hier die Frage der nicht lösbaren Widersprüche in den Vordergrund tritt, gleichzeitig aber auch eine parodistische Neugestaltung tradierter Topoi- wie etwa das des Künstlermannes, die Rivalität zu der als weiblich begriffenen Natur arbeitet - erprobt wird. In diesen Kontext wird der Roman von Banks gesetzt, den die Verfasserin sowohl als klugen Freud-Leser wie auch als Kritiker verstanden haben will.
