This essay describes how John Lennon's song "Imagine" served as a vehicle for his redemption from the guilt he experienced as a result of his alienation from and rejection of the prevailing symbols of political and religious authority. "Imagine" functioned as "redemptive identification," leading to catharsis, a purging of Lennon's guilt and his redemption.
