This paper attempts to study the protagonist and other major characters in light of Psychoanalysis. Psychoanalysis is a way of examining the characters’ anxiety or desire influencing one’s action and behavior. Ruskin Bond is familiar with his unique character formation. Through the characters, a keen understanding of human nature is depicted. The purpose of the study is to analyze the characters in terms of Freud’s Theory of Personality. This is an effort to interpret the characters according to Freud’s “the id, the ego and the superego”. This paper delineates the human psyche and the unconscious motive of the protagonists in the novel.
