The twentieth-century literature and culture tended to explore and to celebrate subjectivity. In his attempts to define the uncanny Freud asserted .. Read more that it is undoubtedly related to what is frightening – to what arouses dread and horror. It may be something domestic but at the same time unfriendly, dangerous, something that sets the sense of insecurity within the four walls of one’s house. “Persons, things, sense-impressions, experiences and situations which are known and long familiar arouse in us the feeling of danger, fear and even horror. Everyday objects may suddenly lose their familiar side, and become messengers”. The uncanny suggests an unsettling of the feeling of comfort and reassurance in one’s home, but also in oneself. The perturbed relationship between the characters and their familiar world, the troubled sense of home and self-certainty is a result of a traumatic experience of loss.
