Katherine Jones

The author tries to show that Schiller chose the 'escape into illness' whenever he felt unable to grapple with serious psychical conflicts. She proves her thesis by different quotations from Schiller's letters and in a very interesting manner shows how Schiller's last dramatic works were interfered with by illness mainly because he had chosen conflicts arising from the Oedipus complex to represent them. Those topics interested him most, but he felt unable to develop them dispassionately in his work and the intense mental strain made him prefer—unconsciously, of course—to escape into illness. This connection the author shows up on Schiller's 'Demetrius'; which remained unfinished. Schiller regressed so far to infantile complexes that he seemed unable to give up the 'gain of illness', for illness seems the only way to abreact his unconscious libidinal tendencies.
