"Among the literary and critical theories that gained currency over the course of the ?th century, two strands of thought in particular resonate new historicism and aspects of neo psychoanalytic theory that touch on unconscious processes that operate not so much at the individual as at the social level where experience is shared and unconscious processes are collectively enacted, via encounters between and among inmates of the community to shape human experience."
