ABSTRACT

The ultimate purpose of human life is to pursue happiness. Therefore, it can be justified if these proprietors are used as an incentive to explain human contradictory external behaviors. On the other hand, aggression and death urges are actions that are somewhat different from this pursuit of happiness. So how can you explain your aggression and death instincts towards others and yourself? This aggression and death instinct is a favorite subject of literature. The ultimate aim of literature is to impress the reader. Without emotion, the love of art is lost. Since emotion is made when a wound is treated or compensated for from reality, emotion should be realistic. The fact that the works based on the nature of death are appealing and touching to the reader implies that these impulses are inherent in the reader. Therefore, to impress readers, understanding of human behavior by writers who create literature or researchers analyzing human behavior should be a priority. So a psychological approach to literature is needed, which also helps us to understand literary texts that resemble human behavior. This impression can serve as a platform for the reader to awaken his or her emotions and establish correct values, which can lead to positive behavior. In this sense, it is a challenge to analyze and study the mechanisms by which literature can inspire. The author Kim Ryeo-ryeong said, " There were many people I wanted to kill, so I had to kill them, and a new novel started. " And I confess that all I ever wanted was love. It is also the reason why we should continue to discuss the old but unforgotten theme of love and death. There are also many deaths in ' I Saw You. ' Both aggression towards others and self-destruction towards me are tragedies caused by the unbalanced life and death, but this death instinct is also another struggle for human life. Thus, the death instinct ultimately stems from the instinct for life and is a change towards life. Authors love and kill many people in their works. The theme of love and death is so common and popular. But isn't it because it's the most natural aspect of humans that is why these subjects are constantly repeating themselves? That's why Freud's argument is still a hot topic for modern people living in the 21st century.
