Description

Elements

  • An Unfortunate
  • A Threatener
  • A Rescuer

Summary

The Unfortunate is threatened in some way by the Threatener and is saved by the Rescuer.

Variants

A

  1. Appearance of a rescuer to the condemned.

B

  1. A parent replaced upon the throne by his children.
  2. Rescue by friends or by strangers grateful for benefits or hospitality.

Discussion

Being rescued plays to the primitive need for safety and echoes the childhood theme of being 'saved' by parents from the various messes into which children get themselves.

The general field of psychoanalysis is full of observations around the theme of patterns that originate from infancy

'Deliverance' is the 2nd of Georges Polti's 36 Dramatic Situations.
