Reflektion om spegelfasen i Russian Doll


Summary, in English

The author of this essay conducts a close reading of the American Netflix series Russian Doll and applies the psychoanalytical term the mirror stage on the series characters and premise. The mirror stage was presented by psychoanalyst Jaques Lacan during the 1930’s and ever since Jaques Lacan presented his theory, it has been applied to both life and movies. In the analysis of this paper the author will determine whether the mirror stage works as a catalysator to the characters and their evolvement.
