dc.description.abstractIn this essay, I will provide a Lacanian analysis of Black Swan (2010). My primary interest is the psychoanalytic study of the main character, Nina Sayers. Nina is a professional corps-turned-principle ballerina who becomes hystericized when cast as the Swan Queen in Swan Lake. Throughout the course of this paper, I hope to explicate the nature of Nina's illness through a Lacanian theoretical framework; specifically, I will provide an interpretation of desire and hysteria.en_US
