Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to examine how early experiences of childhood leave permanent imprints on human’s personality, determines the conflict between faith and doubt, fanaticism and skepticism in perspective of two different cultural and ideological beliefs, using qualitative research methodology. This work aims to find out that how Shafak’s Three Daughters of Eve (2016) speaks for her identity and what are the psychological factors which lead Peri to a confused state of mind under the lens of Erik Erikson’s Stages of development (1998) and The Reproduction of M¬othering articulated by Nancy Chodorow (1978). This current study’s findings show that, Shafak has uncovered the perpetual effects of family, society and tradition, which are deeply rooted in the psyche of every person from his/her childhood, leaving permenant imprints on one’s innerself. This study recommends that childrens are pliable during childhood, and they can be moulded according to the situation.
