MAI, Luanza Pavesi  and  MELLO NETO, Gustavo Adolfo Ramos. The acting out in narratives of heinous crimes of murder: a psychoanalytic reading. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.3, pp. 405-417. ISSN 2359-0769.

This article presents the proposal of thinking psychoanalytically the experience of a supposititious reader forward the reading of the book Serial Killer: Louco ou Cruel? that contains some narratives of heinous crimes of murder. This study is the partial result of master's dissertation presented to the Post-graduation program in psychology of Universidade Federal de Maringá with the title "A narrativa de crimes de assassinatos cruéis: um estudo psicanalítico", which aims to investigate the possible unconsciousness manifestations that may be present during the reading of books which tell about heinous crimes of murder and expose many cases, among which, to this article were chosen "O casal letal" and "Theodore Robert Bundy." It was essentially inspired by the André Green's studies presented in "O deslisgamento" and by Freud's texts; this study launches two basic hypotheses: (1) the existence of a common nucleus to this narrative and (2) the presence of an invitation to the perversion done by the writer to the reader from the writing of such narratives. As a conclusion, it is know that there is a common nucleus which is related not only with the wish fulfillment, which is fairly obvious, but also with the unconsciousness manifestations, such as the originary scene, the beating fantasy, and finally, the dead mother complex.

Keywords : psychoanalysis; psychoanalysis and literature; narratives of heinous murders; acting out; unconsciousness manifestations.
