Darth Vader: Masks, Power, and Meaning.
Rojcewicz, Stephen
Journal of Poetry Therapy, v1 n1 p23-30 Fall 1987
Investigates Darth Vader's character from the "Star Wars" movies, stimulated by the psychiatric treatment of a schizophrenic male with the delusion that he was Darth Vader. Discusses the temptations and threats from Darth Vader, which coincide with themes and fantasies of childhood and adolescence. Suggests that Darth Vader's sacrifice and redemption allow for a successful and inspiring conclusion. (RS)
