Abstract

The analysis of John Fowles’s the Collector explores the meaning of obsessive activities––doing something as a neurotic patient forgetting every other thing–– of central male character Clegg. Clegg has obsession with Miranda, photography and pornography because of which he involves in entrapping Miranda, and taking different photos of her. His surrender towards art reveals his repressed desires. Because of the constant conflict of id and ego in service of super-ego, the mind of Clegg is inflicted from obsession and acts like a neurotic patient.
