At the height of being in love the boundary between ego and object threatens to melt away. Our present ego-feeling is, therefore, only a shrunken residue of a much more inclusive—indeed, an all-embracing—feeling which corresponded to a more intimate bond between the ego and the world around it. The fact remains that only in the mind is such a preservation of all the earlier stages alongside of the final form possible. The origin of the religious attitude can be traced back in clear outlines as far as the feeling of infantile helplessness. The question of the purpose of human life has been raised countless times; it has never yet received a satisfactory answer and perhaps does not admit of one. Another procedure [to avoid pain] operates more energetically and thoroughly. It regards reality as the sole enemy and as the source of all suffering, with which it is impossible to live, so that one must break off all relations with it if one is to be in any way happy.

A new edition of a classic text of Western culture is a happy occasion, not least because it offers the opportunity to debate the book's effect on the way we see the world -- or whether it has any effect at all. Being leatherbound is sometimes synonymous with being timebound. Freud's essay rests on three arguments that are impossible to prove: the development of civilization recapitulates the development of the individual; civilization's central purpose of repressing the aggressive instinct exacts unbearable suffering; the individual is torn between the desire to live Eros and the wish to die Thanatos. It is impossible to refute Freud's theses, too. All three arguments have died in the minds of many people, under the pressure of intellectual opposition, only to remain alive and well in the minds of many others. To clarify the status of Freud's influence today is to get a better sense of a central rift running through the culture we live in. In one important sense, Freud's ideas have had an undeniable impact.

Most of these traits are present in the playtext of Macbeth and in several productions, and they are undoubtedly related to violence. Examples of uncanny violence abound in Macbeth, a playtext that has always been considered one of the most violent of Shakespeare's oeuvre, and that may well be seen as the uncanniest.
