Example text

Hamlet, the tragedy around which mourning is theo­ rized in psychoanalysis, itself becomes an object of textual dis­ placement and mourning. Finally, pre-Oedipal mourning tends to disappear silently into and be restructured by the Oedipal triangle. This disappearance is repeated by Freud's subordi­ nation of Hamlet to Oedipus Rex, and, with regard to Hamlet, by the institutionalization of the Oedipal reading, at the expense of the melancholic. T h e Undiscover'd C o u n t r y In The Interpretation of Dreams, the yoking of Oedipus and Hamlet appears as a literary analogy in the chapter "Dreams of Shapes of Grief 27 the Death of Persons of Whom the Dreamer Is Fond," which at this point is merely one category of dreams among others.

13 "Unpleasure" becomes "loss" through a process of expulsive projection that will eventually personify the painful tension of hunger as the absent or "bad" mother. 14 More­ over, projection, as expulsion, enacts the process of loss, which enables "personification," that is, the formation of self and other. 15 The reference in "Mourning and Melancholia" to a "narcissistic oral phase" (250), implying the most primitive libidinal organization and a dual, specular re­ lationship, is coordinate with what Freud and others would later call the pre-Oedipal.

If their mother does actually make the journey to that 'undis­ covered country, from whose bourn no traveller returns,' chil­ dren seem at first to have forgotten her, and it is only later on that they begin to call their dead mother to mind [erst nachtraglich beginnen sie, sich an die Tote zu erinnern]. (SE 4-254-55; SA 2:259-60) In a pattern by now familiar, mourning for the mother is enun­ ciated through allusion to Hamlet. T h e loss of the mother, ap­ parently originary, is, however, only remembered or erinnert through deferred action, erst nachtraglich; the maternal object is taken in after the fact, constructed through and around the experience of loss.
