Catharsis comes from the Greek meaning to purge, purify, or cleanse. In psychoanalysis, catharsis is known as the bringing of repressed ideas or experiences into consciousness, thus relieving tension. According to the great philosopher, Aristotle, catharsis is the goal of story telling. It is a new clarity that comes through the journey of the story by the evocation of pity or the fear of evil.
