Bathroom Monologue: Down the Freudian Stream
You see, there are post-Freudian writers, and then there are post-post-Freudian writers. Post-Freudian writers have studied his theories and apply his concepts and symbologies into the constitutions of their characters and plots. Post-post-Freudian writers have heard something about Freud, and write about everyone wanting to bang their moms and their boss looking like that bully from second grade. Post-post-Freudians are part of a greater pandemic of authors who overwhelmingly seem to have written more books than they have read. It wouldn't be nearly as bad if the first post-post-Freudian writer wasn't Sigmund Freud.
