Comparison of the “Psycho” and “A Rose for Emily” The Psycho by Alfred Hitchcock and A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner are works with different plots and endings. The movie is focused on a maniac, who recreated an image of his mother to kill visitors. Norman Bates killed own mother because he thought she “betrayed” him, and used her personality in his further crimes. The man was caught and his actions were revealed long before his death. Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society.

Serial killing is a kind of macabre art perfected by psychopaths, who are either on a pleasure trip or a trial of revenge, who kills at least three victims one by one in a series of sequential murders, with a form of psychological gratification as the primary motive. There is a deep connection between the actions and the psychology of a serial killer. Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon (1981) is a crime thriller and features a serial killer whose cleft lip is the primary factor motivating his murderous behaviour. With particular attention to the image of the mirror, this assignment is concerned with offering a psychoanalytic reading of the novel, through the Lacanian concept of the mirror stage. It also aims to analyse the reasons and motives of the serial killer Francis Dolarhyde in the light of psychological theories like psychoanalysis and behavioural theory.

The best example of Richards’s compulsive characteristics is the way he killed Frank. The Author writes very bluntly, “Richard shot Frank in front of the boys” (570). We can infer that the author writes this way, because he wants the reader to wonder why Richard is obsessed with his wife, and he loves her more than anything. She is his pride, and he will do anything to keep her, even if it means killing her lover in front of his children. This is why he is so compulsive when he kills frank.

This consumption of the painting captures the nature of his obsessive misogyny resulting from his childhood memories of abuse and domination. He clearly sees himself as the Red Dragon of Blake’s painting, The Great Red Dragon and the Woman Clothed with the Sun, and his female victims as the avatars of the woman. On one of his army trips to London, Dolarhyde gets the Red Dragon tattooed on his back and gets a false pair of teeth for his murders which are based on the mould of his grandmother’s teeth. It is his memories of his childhood days of abuse, initially from his grandmother and later from his estranged mother and her husband that provokes his misogyny. He was made to believe that he was not wanted and this led to his wanting to “become” the Dragon who, he believed, was a hub of power.
