The Interplay Between Abjection and Juissance: The Overlapping of Abjection and Desire in Angels in America
At the core, I anchor on Kristeva and Lacan’s psychoanalytic theory to delve into the manifestation of narcissistic crisis and identity transformation of Joe Pitt in Angels in America with an attempt to scrutinize the boundary-overlapping between desire and abjection and interplay between Jouissance and abjection, which decidedly associate with the territory of sexual intercourse. I am tempted to explore how Joe converts himself from a victim of abject into a “fascinated victim” (Kristeva 9). At bottom, Kristeva’s psychoanalytic theory models on Freud's psychosexual developmental theory, which is chiefly grounded in his ideas of sexual drive. Angels in America touches on the issues of discriminated sexual orientation, namely, homosexuality. Evidently, Joe Pitt’s identity negotiation and metamorphosis process offer compelling example of a paradoxical momentum between abjection and Juissance. Essentially, I center on psychoanalyzing Joe’s identity formation in deciphering Joe's inner turmoil and ultimate emancipation. Joe Pitt proceeds through the role of a closeted Marmon homophobia adherent into a confident coming out gay.
Sexual intercourse is a historically biased and stigmatized subject, which conventionally tied up to the issues ranged from shame, transgression to moral corruption. It is a norm that sexuality represents or disturbs an individual’s identity. The contradiction lies in the fact that sexual intercourse is ironically the main source of Juissance for human beings, which is in accordance with Freud's theory. Sexual need is partly of human nature and instinctually corporeal. Sex drive is essentially reproductive. Hence, when abjection located in the boundary of sexuality, its interruption could be more drastic, intense and recurrent.Sex drive is “ the heterogeneous flow” inherent in the human body” namely, “ a possession previous to my advent, a being-there of the symbolic” (10). I suppose the overlapping of abjection and desire frequently hinges on the boundary of sexual related discourse, such as adultery, role play or SM and so on, which are generally insinuated to the biased conception of perversity.
In Joe’s case, the mainstream homophobia embodies the symbolic order and homosexual identity epitomizes the abjection, the excluded, the horrifying otherness, which has something to do with mortification and inferiority. Trying to disconnect himself from the horrified shame-ridden identity, homosexual identity, Joe fights against his sexual instinct and embraces false identity as a straight men.Hence, he executes erosion of sexual needs, which is an execution of "repression" and defense mechanism proposed by Freud. When it comes to need, need is “the precondition of the individual’s survival and well-being “which demands “real, tangible objects for its satisfaction (60). Joes bears deprivation or hunger of sexual needs before coming out. Instinct denial is an absolutely fatal sacrifice. Before Joe’s coming out, he grapples with sexual hunger and sexual dissatisfaction in life. According to Freud’s pleasure principle, human is born to embrace pleasure by nature. Hence, instinct-denial is terribly unnatural. Also, Joe describes a picture of Jacob wrestling an angel has always stuck with Joe. He describes it to Harper:

It is promoted and encouraged by Church and civil authority in the late medieval era with an attempt to render teachings and knowledge about social, moral value in a didactic approach. With dramatic allegories, it centers on illustrating personalized virtues, vice or temptation struggles. “ Everyman” and “ Dr. Faustus” are classic example of this genre.
It is a strict puritan sect of the 16th and 16the centuries that the separatists would rather separate form the Church of England than reform and many of them first settled America.
