Opening the Locked Room: A Psychoanalytical Study of True Detective´s Character Rustin Cohle


This essay presents a deep analysis of Rustin Cohle, the main character of the HBO´s TV show True Detective. Rustin Cohle is a detective who has to investigate the case of a murdered woman whose corpse appears in a strange position the day of his daughter´s birthday. He is a lonely person who has a pessimistic vision of life. He is a reflexive character who considers himself a realistic person, but in philosophical terms he is conscious that he is a pessimistic person due to his vision of life and reality.
We will provide an analysis of his behaviour, his way of looking at reality and his psyche (or as he called it, his locked room) from a psychoanalytic point of view. To do so we use the Psychoanalytical theories provided by Freud and the recent research based on Trauma Theory.

Echoes of Transcendentalism in North-American Contemporary Literature


This essay compares two novels, The Name of the Wind and The New York Trilogy, in relation to Transcendentalism, the well-known American literary and philosophical movement from the 19th century. It is going to be interesting to see how these two contemporary novels which apparently are different in style and content can be related through the ideas of Transcendentalism. These novels are different not only in their categories (The Name of the Wind is a fantasy novel and The New York Trilogy is a literary masterpiece, which borrows from the genre of detective novels) but also they are supposed to have a different audience (The Name of the Wind may be considered to be addressed to a more popular audience and The New York Trilogy to a more cultivated audience). With this essay we also want to prove that Transcendentalism continues to influence contemporary writers, both highbrow and lowbrow.

Postmodern Ghosts: A Postmodern Analysis of Paul Auster´s Ghosts


In this essay we analyze Ghosts, the second book of The New York Trilogy, from a Postmodern perspective. This book was written by the American writer Paul Auster. In this essay we focus on the ideas of simulacra, hyperreality and reality and how they apply to this novel. We also discuss how the idea of Metafiction is present here and why this can be considered to be a metafictional novel.

 Sangre y Polvo


Tras años de dudas, de suposiciones y habladurías, por fin se conocerá la verdad.
Antes de aquellos días se habían sucedido muchas disputas y guerras, pero por fin se alzaba algo parecido a la paz, o al menos eso creían los habitantes de Gaia. No obstante, iluso es aquel que cree que la paz durará por siempre, pues la naturaleza del ser humano es intentar dominar a otros.
Solo una persona parecía no creer lo que veían sus ojos en aquellos momentos, lo que tanto había deseado y anhelado. Era la persona que sujetaba las páginas que tanto habían buscado, la persona a la que iban destinadas dichos escritos. Cierto era que su autor había deseado que esas páginas llegasen a las manos de aquel que las sujetaba ahora. Al menos, ese había sido el propósito de alguien adorado por muchos y odiado por otros tantos.
Mucho tiempo habían esperado las personas de toda Gaia para saber la verdad, aunque solo fuese una parte de ella. Y al fin lo lograron, pues en las manos de Indúrinel se encontraba la historia de una vida y la de muchas muertes.

Una historia llena de aventuras, viajes, batallas, amor y traiciones que atrapará al lector desde la primera página. ¿Te atreves a descubrir el secreto tras las Puertas del Conocimiento?

  1. Dear David,

    I bought your essay of The Transcendentalism of Kvothe and I must say I deeply regret it.
    I found your theories somewhat interesting even if I think that your reasoning was, on occasion, inconsistent.
    BUT first of all your English was horrible. And I don´t mean the spelling (that just happens and is somehow endearing) but your style was crude at best. It was truly embarrassing. I can´t conceive how you dared to publish it. And you don´t just publish it, no you ask for money... I mean, normally I cherish self-publisher but you showed me how invaluable the advice of a professional publisher is. Maybe I ought to thank you. I like to think I bought that piece of wisdom for the 0,89€ and not your essay...
    Anyway, so I guess what I wanted to to tell you is that the piece of crap I called generously essy is awful.
    Very kind and overly warm regards (and truly yours)
    P.S.:Please excuse my language. I don´t speak English very well.

  2. You may find my English strange since I´m not a native speaker of English, however my essay was corrected by two teachers of my university, one of them native speaker of English. If you say that I don´t write well in English, well it´s your opinion and I will accept it.
