Passive Male Homosexuality in Pre-Christian Scandinavia - “The love that dare not speak its name” truly was a mute love in pre-Christian Norse society. The Norse viewed male homosexual intercourse through a curious (by modern American standards) dichotic lens. Similarly to Roman and Greek societies, the Norse attached no great negative stigma or condemnatory connotations to the idea itself of homosexual intercourse. However, the Vikings intensely disapproved of free men taking the passive role in any male-male sexual acts. Norse society regarded passivity in all penetrative intercourse as intrinsically related to unmanly, and therefore feminine, behavior....   [tags: Homosexuality ]

Freud's Viewss of The Uncanny in Hoffmann's Sand-Man - In Sigmund Freud’s examination of The Uncanny he looks at this subject through the lens of psycho-analysis and aesthetics and seeks to establish the meaning of uncanny and relate it to occurrences and circumstances. Therefore, it is not surprising that Freud relies on E.T.A. Hoffmann’s The Sand-Man as a primary model. What is surprising, however, is Freud’s partial interpretation of the literature. Freud’s treatment of Hoffmann’s Sand-Man is not a valid rendering because it focuses too heavily on attributing the uncanny to the castration complex, while rejecting Jentsch’s theory of intellectual uncertainty, and altogether neglecting the profound spiritual constituents of this tale....   [tags: Sigmund Freud, literature, perspective, spiritual]
