Location, Location, Location

Repetition is associated with Thanatos, Freud's definition of the 'death drive'. Here are some examples:

Sylvia Plath...

"Every woman adores a Fascist,
The boot in the face, the brute
Brute heart of a brute like you."
-- 'Daddy'

Lady Macbeth...

"To bed, to bed! there's knocking at the gate:
come, come, come, come, give me your hand. What's
done cannot be undone.—To bed, to bed, to bed!"
--Macbeth, Act 5, Scene 1

Amy Winehouse...

"They tried to make me go to rehab,
I said,"no, no no"."
-- 'Rehab'

The facts are there. In spite of the tennis.
