That we have an 'unconscious' mind is now widely assumed, though the concept does not seem to have been fully formulated until the early 20th century. We investigate the concept of the unconscious as promoted by Freud and developed by later psychoanalysts, focusing on how Coleridge, Eliot and Heaney engage in discovering what they (and we) might know.
