CHAPTER II THEORETICAL FRAMEWORK Since the story in Mr. Brooks is rich of personality issues, so the theory that the
Character is not onlyplaying a major role in the story but character is also creating a conflict that can develop and build the idea of the story. Static and Dynamic CharacterCharacters in fiction can also be distinguished on the basis of whether they demonstrate the capacity to develop or change as the result of their experiences.5 Dynamic characters exhibit this capacity; static characters do not.
Characterization is the presentation of the attitudes and behavior of imaginary 9 persons in order to make them credible to the author’s audience. So many other choices that the writer of fiction is called on to make, the choice of a method of characterization depends on a number of different circumstances, includingthe author’s temperament, the particular literary conventions of the period in which he or 10 she is writing, the size and scope of the work, and many other reasons.
B. Sigmund Freud’s Psychoanalysis about Personality Structure
The best example of primary process in normal people is the nocturnal dream, which Freud believed always represents the fulfillment or attempted of a wish.14 The hallucinations and visions of psychotic patients are also examples of the primary Obviously, the primary process by itself is not capable of reducing tension. However, since self-destruction is opposed by the life-preservingenergy of libido, aggression against the self usually is redirected outward against the world, motivating human being to compete, to conquer, and to kill.
The ego is the realistic personality process, therefore ego is said to obey the reality principle : the gratification of impulses must be delayed until the appropriate environmental conditions are found. The ego mediates among the demands of the id, the relatives of the external circumstances, and the demand of the superego.
Superego is the internalized representation of the values and morals of society as taught to the child by the parents and 22 others. From the point of view of a dynamic interpretation of personality, the key concept is that the three parts of the personality are often at odds: the ego postpones thegratifications that the id wants right away, and the superego wars with both the id and the ego because they often fall short of the moral value that it represents.

At the most basic level, and completely submerged in the unconscious is the id, which operates according to the pleasure principle. Mediating between superego and the id is the ego, which tries to satisfy the wishes of the id while being responsive to the dictates of the superego.
