Abstract

Serendipitous parapraxes in the recall of poetry are rarely reported in the contemporary literature. An overlooked example in everyday life presented by Freud is underscored and discussed. Its principles are applicable to clinical and educational research and practice, taking into account contemporary transference-countertransference dynamics.
