Example text

One of the characteristics of the Oedipal situation, which is reflected in the analysis, is that the participants often find themselves pulled in more than one direction. Each option seems to involve a compromise and may require a blurring or avoidance of aspects of reality that arouse too much pain or guilt. In Sophocles’ play, Oedipus did not make a conscious decision to kill his father and marry his mother; the choices that presented themselves to all the participants seemed to be the best ones at the time, and the marriage had the approbation of the people of Thebes, even though there were those who knew the truth and presumably considered it best to remain silent.

An example of this was the way the conflicts of the Oedipal child became projected so it was the analyst who was confronted with the uncomfortable dilemmas. One issue that these cases raise relates to the origin of the internal model of the parental couple (or the different versions of the couple, which coexist). This model will be partly based on the infant’s accurate perceptions and intuitions regarding the nature of the couple of which the infant was a part in the early feeding situation, and later the Oedipal couple with which the infant becomes preoccupied.

With his father in particular, there seems to have been the phantasy of taking the mother’s place, and this was expressed over the weekend by the dream, in which he made himself exciting by getting into her clothes. And yet, in a sad and touching way, he conveyed that he never really believed that any of this would succeed. In his dream the man was a ‘pure homosexual’, which meant someone who had no interest in real women, but who found my patient, dressed in women’s underclothes, tantalizing and exciting.
