This chapter discusses psychoanalysis as a cultural archive of tropes that is often called upon and exposed by both Hitchcock and Nabokov in their texts, and which is also used as the critical framework that supports the readings presented in this book. It notes that these readings have shown the same patterns, especially in the family romances of Nabokov and in the moments of home paranoia of Hitchcock.
