What literary text would be good to explore Freudian theory

I have to write an essay studying Freudian theory for English Lit (mainly about dream theory and Oedipus complex etc.) but need to link it to a literary text (fiction - a play, novel etc.). Any ideas??
I would recommend Oedipus Rex the play/novel and a research paper written by klaus Krippendorf :Content Analysis: An Introduction to its Methodology." 2nd Edition (2004): xiii-413.
You can google them both.
good luck
Dracula cultural repression of ‘transgression’ and desires of the id.
Haven’t read it but I think the french book Antigone is adapted from a tale about Oedipus???
Actually Antigone is about œdipus’ daughter standing by her father and is written by Sophocles who also wrote Oedipus Rex.
