My focus will be the application of the concept of trauma theory that is the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder on the female protagonist of the play “Lyubov Andreyevna Ranevskaya”. The Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental disorder which is experienced by people who have witnessed a traumatic event. This, as a result, hinders their ability to think rationally and make them hallucinate. The aim of this research paper is to show how the negligence of not being able to recognize the symptoms of a medical disorder and how not taking proper medical care for it, leads one to lose their utopia. Literature review: The contemporary trauma theory derived by pioneer critics such as Caruth and Felman has a central claim that a traumatic incident creates a “speechless fright that divides or destroys identity”.
Modern day sociologists tackle their research from one of three different points of view.

Phron Scranton Modernism and realism how do these types of literature came to evolve and how are they compared? In this writing, there will be a comparison of modernism and realism and how they related to each other. These two types of literature played a part in American history and happened during a pivotal era of time. When a person thinks of realism the thought that may come to mind is it references reality.

Garland states, “Criminology has become increasingly independent, but as it becomes more autonomous it becomes less deeply rooted in what were once its constitutive disciplines,” (Garland, 2008). Yes, obtaining a sense of autonomy and self-rule can be beneficial and a goal of any academic field of study, but for criminology, pursuing complete independence has proven to be problematic. It is easy to see this as a problem if you can allow yourself to think of the field of criminology as an adolescent, with its parents being criminal justice and sociology. Let’s say the adolescent grew up in the church of anthropology and has been attending the school of psychology. The adolescent has reached the age where independence and autonomy is the main goal of its life.

It is rare that you find a novel or a piece of fiction that is completely unaffected by the author’s world-view. Actually, none that fit that description come to mind when it comes to the influence of world-view and philosophy in a novel. However, it takes a considerable amount of time to see the comparisons between stories from any literary movement. The Naturalism and Realism literary movements are no exception, and the stories that define this movement have extremely similar themes and literary devices, including Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton, “The Death of a Hired Hand,” by Robert Frost, and “Home Burial,” also by Robert Frost. Authors from this time period use similar themes and literary devices, all due to the fact that they have the same philosophy and worldview.
This revolution happens when she drops a giant bombshell on her children by admitting that she gradually poisoned her husband and eventually killed him (Adichie 290). You almost sense a turning point in Beatrice’s character, a revelation of sort however what we find is not a rejuvenated, powerful woman but rather a cold, departed being lacking any want to continue. The last chapter’s title, “A Different Silence” sums up our last defiance of Beatrice’s classic character traits. Kambili describes an unkempt woman who only nods and shakes her head from time to time (Adichie 296-298). Even though Beatrice could be described as quiet or reserved at the start of the novel, she still always had a sense of aliveness and would never show an unpolished side of her appearance.
These characteristics were observed in women’s fiction and have influenced many modern writers like James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, D.H. Lawrence and critics like Terry Eagleton, I.A. Richards and T.S.

Psychoanalytic writers’ works exhibit the transformation of one’s deepest desires and anxieties into socially acceptable meaning.
One of Richette’s last acts on the bench before her untimely demise was saving an infant from a Frankfort crack house. Richette spent her whole life making sure that the oppressed and less fortunate were given a fair chance at happiness. She was a feminist and shouted women's rights. She was outspoken and she stepped to the beat of her own drums. Richette did not take orders from anyone and she stepped up to challenges even when all odds were against
The study of human universals is in the midst of a distinguished resurrection in linguistics, anthropology, behavioral biology, cognitive science and other fields. Literature is certainly the most eligible tool to discover and evaluate very atmosphere of human mind. Fiction, fasten the most characteristic and powerful form of literary expression today, has acquired an influential portion in the Indo- English literature. As quality literature concentrates on psychological concepts rather than sociological themes, Psychoanalysis becomes both the map and the legend for the 20th century's fiction and prominent novelists of post colonial India employed this technique and succeeded in exploring inner self of their characters.
