International Journal of Psychoanalysis. XXXVI, 1955: Shakespeare's Early Errors. A. Bronson Feldman. Pp. 114-133.

It is suggested that The Comedy of Errors is most representative of Shakespeare's infantile components, therefore most likely to reveal the primary springs of his fantasies. Quotations illustrate that behind the comedy there is the motive of evading melancholic depression. 'The core of the whole play is an apology for Shakespeare's errors in matrimony', the poet creating a farce about himself with the will to believe that a faulty marriage was the source of his troubles. In the play he replaces his father and fulfils the incestuous drives. As in a palimpsest, underlying elements are concealed behind secondary and tertiary elaborations.
