EXPLORING ECOPSYCHOLOGICAL INTERCONNECTIONS: A STUDY OF HAN KANG’S THE VEGETARIAN

RAIMY GEORGE, DR. SUNITHA.V.

Abstract
Psychology deals with the study of the various states of the mind of the individual. Etymologically the word “eco” is derived
from the Greek word Oikos meaning “home”. Ecopsychology studies the working of the psyche and its association with its
surroundings and explores “the basic shifts in our patterns of identity and relationship that occur when we include our
connection to the web of life around us as essential to human well-being.” [1] Han Kang explores these connexions with the
natural environment around us and the language of the psyche by narrating the story of a middle-class woman from Korea
named Yeong Hye whose decision to change into a vegetarian shows its ripple effects on the people around her. Yeong Hye’s
dreams become very crucial in interpreting her the ecopsychology of her mind and her actions.
Search Criteria: A literature survey was done in Scopus, Academia and Google Scholar for articles based on Ecopsychology
and novel review.

Key words: Dreams, Ecopsychology, Mind, Nature, Psyche, Society.
