FONOFF, Fernanda Mara Colucci  and  COLUCCI, Regina de Baptista. Heroes, princess and children’s imaginary. J. psicanal. [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.75, pp. 269-283. ISSN 0103-5835.

The authors propose an exploration of the vicissitudes of Oedipus complex in boys and girls through the analysis of the structural differences in children’s stories. From the perceptions of princesses that in fairy tales are motherless and of superheroes that are bereaved of both parents, this paper aims to explore how the presence of the shared myths contributes for the development of personal myths of each child inside of the universe of the pregenital object relations, genital object relations and Oedipus conflicts. Thus, this study will be divided in 4 parts: the first will be of Oedipus-hero; the second, of the superheroes; the third, of the princesses; and the forth will analyze a current story that is different because it presents an Oedipus plot that is lived by all family. Finally, the authors conclude with the development of the theoretical considerations.

Keywords : Fairy tale; Hero; Personal myth; Oedipus conflict; Object relation; Pregenital object relation.
