Description:

This paper analyzes the issue of sexually repressed desire in "Oedipus the King" by Sophocles and Sigmund Freud's "Dora". The paper shows how the highly comparable characters Dora and Oedipus represent the tragic mental illness of sexual enmeshment between daughter/son and father/mother relationships that are often the result of repressed sexual desire. The paper explains that the "Oedipus Complex" is the direct result of Freud's evaluation of Oedipus' own sexual trauma, which he then transposes onto Dora's character.
