Abstract: Psychoanalytic criticism, one of the branches of literary criticism, uses the methods and techniques of psychoanalysis proposed by an Austrian, Sigmund Freud to interpret literature, primarily the characters in a work of art. According to Sigmund Freud — whose contribution to the field of psychology is large in quantity, and huge in number — unconscious is a part of mind, which is beyond conscious mind, but has a great deal of impact upon human actions. Freud divided a person’s personality into three levels: ego, super-ego, and id, respectively, the consciousness, the conscience, and the unconsciousness. The Id is humans’ psychological energy which is derived from instinctual needs and drives. The Ego is the organized mediator between inner world of a person and reality of the world outside. The Super ego is conscious mind of humans that acts according to the social norms and moral principles. This article focuses on the conflict among id, ego, and super ego of Samrat, the protagonist of Keep of the Grass and Johnny of Johnny Gone Down.
