For the purpose of t h i s study, the thesis writer applies the psychoanalytic theories of Sigmund Freud to understand the reasons behind the main character's personality and attitude. One of the most striking things of her behavior is her psychosexual perversion. The novel illustrates Ursula's childhood, whereby she experiences a very shocking rejection from her father, and the hurt remains within her, leading her to some psychological disorder. She gets involved in the same-sex relationship, she thinks that s h e c a n find the kind of life she desires, but she turns out to be wrong. Finally, she realizes that she h a s made a big mistake. From the analysis, the thesis writer may conclude that one's past childhood may have a big influence on shaping one's behavior.
