Example text

Moreover, as he explains, ‘No other part of the dream-work is so much responsible for making the dream strange and incomprehensible to the dreamer. Displacement is the principal means used in the dream-distortion to which the [latent] dream-thoughts must submit under the influence of the censorship’ (1973b: 50). The third aspect of the dream-work, operative in the first two, is symbolization, the ‘translation of dream-thoughts into a primitive mode of expression similar to picture-writing’ (1973a: 267), in which ‘the latent dream-thoughts … are dramatized and illustrated’ (1973b: 47).

With the help of displacement the dream-censorship creates substitutive structures which … are allusions which are not easily recognizable as such, from which the path back to the genuine thing is not easily traced, and which are connected with the genuine thing by the strangest, most unusual, external associations’ (1973a: 272). He illustrates this second aspect of displacement with a joke. The Freudian Everyday 31 There was a blacksmith in a village, who had committed a capital offence. The Court decided that the crime must be punished; but as the blacksmith was the only one in the village and was indispensable, and as on the other hand there were three tailors living there, one of them was hanged instead.

It takes two forms. First, it is the verbal account of the dream: the translation of symbols into language and narrative – ‘we fill in gaps and introduce connections, and in doing so are often guilty of gross misunderstandings’ (1973b: 50). Second, and more importantly, secondary revision is the final policing and channelling strategy of the ego, making meaning and coherence in an act of (unconscious) censorship. We can now turn, hopefully with a good understanding of repression and the unconscious, to what Freud calls the psychopathology of everyday life.
