Philip Roth quotes Sigmund Freud in an interview as having said “A man who is loved by his
mother is a conquistador.” Think about Jack Robin in the 1927 Warner Brothers’ film The Jazz Singer as a
possible example of this sort of man. What does a mother’s love do to en- able a son’s success? How might
such love hinder the son’s development? Remember to in- clude a treatment of the relevant songs in the film.
