This paper understands the arguments put forth in the concepts and concludes their importance in literary criticism. They also help determinethe factors that influence Lacan’stheories. Through this paper, we understand the argument of The Mirror Stage, its role in literary criticism and analyze The Picture of Dorian Gray (1891) in contextto The Mirror Stage. Later we look at the Formation of the Unconscious, its structure similar to that of the language, and the role of signifiers in the human psyche.
