Abstract:The purpose of this diploma seminar is to give an in-depth Freudian reading of the novel The Collector by John Fowles and apply basic Freudian psychoanalytic concepts to it, with the intent to analyse the main characters, the relations between them and the meaning of dreams and symbols which appear in the novel. The analysis has shown that the actions of the main character can be explained with Freud's theory of Self and other psychoanalytic concepts: the main character has been marked with the loss of his mother in his childhood that he is not willing to accept. Due to his unconscious wish to get her back in his childhood, he fixated his libido on butterflies, which became a symbol for his lost mother. After winning money on the football pools, the main character is abducted by his unconscious wishes, his Id, which causes a transfer of his libido from butterflies to young women. As he suffers from an unresolved Oedipus complex, he is incapable of having sexual intercourse, so he seeks in women the image of his ideal mother, who would satisfy his infantile sexuality. The ideal mother is unattainable, so he must satisfy his sexual desires through sadistic acts directed against women. As he is condamned to kidnapp and torture women forever, he can be considered a serial killer in evolution.
Keywords:Freud's psychoanalysis, dreams, symbols, John Fowles, The Collector, Unconscious, literature, novel.

Title:ZBIRATELJ - FREUDOVSKA INTERPRETACIJA
Abstract:Namen tega diplomskega seminarja je podati poglobljeno freudovsko analizo romana Zbiratelj, pisatelja Johna Fowlesa, z aplikacijo osnovnih freudovskih psihoanalitičnih konceptov in namenom analize glavnih oseb, razmerij med njimi in pomena sanj in simbolov, ki se pojavljajo v romanu. Analiza je pokazala, da lahko dejanja glavnega lika pojasnjujemo s Freudovo teorijo osebnosti in drugimi psihoanalitičnimi koncepti: glavni lik je zaznamovan z izgubo matere v otroštvu, s čimer se ne more sprijazniti. Zaradi nezavedne želje po njeni vrnitvi, je pri njem v otroštvu prišlo do fiksacije libida na metulje, ki postanejo simbol za izgubljeno mati. Z dobitkom na loteriji se glavnega lika polastijo nezavedne želje, njegov Id, zaradi česar pride do transferja libida iz metuljev na mlade ženske. Ker glavni lik trpi za nerazrešenim Ojdipovim kompleksom, ni zmožen imeti spolnih odnosov, zato v ženskah išče podobo idealne matere, ki naj bi zadovoljila njegovo infantilno seksualnost. Ker je ta nedosegljiva, mora svoje seksualne želje zadovoljiti s sadističnimi dejanji zoper ženske. Tako je obsojen na večno ugrabljanje in trpinčenje žensk, kar kaže na razvijajočega se serijskega morilca.
Keywords:Freudova psihoanaliza, sanje, simboli, John Fowles, Zbiratelj, nezavedno, literatura, roman.
