The Secret Sharer

Joseph Conrad

Study Help Practice Projects

1. Read Edgar Allan Poe's story, "William Wilson," and compose a dialogue between Poe's narrator and the Captain that discusses what they have learned from their "doubles."

2. Consult reference sources on Sigmund Freud's ideas about the conscious mind, specifically his ideas about the id, ego, and superego. Consider how Freud's ideas can be applied to "The Secret Sharer" and then create a poster on which you compare Conrad and Freud's ideas about the make-ups of our personalities. (Freud's The Interpretation of Dreams is a good starting point for your research.)
