Welcome to this week’s discussion of BEHIND THE MASK, in which we welcome our resident armchair psychologists to ponder and muse, our literary detectives to theorize and question.
We invite you all to pull back and explore the many, many masks of CRAZY JANE.
This past week, we were introduced to a few more of Crazy Jane’s personalities, and boy did they not disappoint.
Let’s discuss the “who’s”, the “why’s”, the “what were they thinking’s”?
Let’s pull up a chair and dig a little deeper.
Crazy Jane is definitely a live one. In between knocking us off our rockers with her filthier than filth mouth and performing her bleeding-heart soliloquies in front of a canvas, this Doom Patrol member also seems to be on the hunt for something.
DID YOU KNOW? Crazy Jane is patterned after the lead character in William Butler Yeats’s eclectic series of ““Crazy Jane”” poems, which is an exploration of our many selves.
Let’s dig deeper into the psychological state that governs Crazy Jane, through the lens of “Identity”.
Do you think Jane has any real desire to reconcile her various personalities?
Why do you think Jane feels safe with Robotman?
Is Jane Morris the “real” personality, and is Kay Challis lost forever?
Jane’s multiple personalities are the result of childhood trauma. Do you believe this consequence to be realistic? What are some healthy ways we can address trauma in our own lives?
Share all your thoughts, theories, and additional questions below!
