The shadow can be seen as representing the dark side of an individual


“...[in] literary tradition[s], the shadow becomes a disconcerting guest, and image of evil...”1


this idea is further supported by Johnson, a Jungian theorist, on the developing psyche:


“We are born whole... but somewhere early on our way... things separate into good and evil, and we begin the shadow making process; we divide our lives. In the cultural process we sort out our characteristics into those that are acceptable [and those that are not].”2


With the socially unacceptable behaviours becoming the shadow that faithfully lurks behind us.
