A truly exhaustive explanation of the meaning of dream symbols and their interpretation, this book will enlighten even experienced analysts who fail to make use of the rich material dreams furnish. -- Richard C. Robertiello, M.D. At last! A dictionary of dream interpretation that contains actual dream specimens from abandonment to zoophilia with psychoanalytic interpretations. Each dream indicates the dreamer's background, the dreamer's association, and one or more interpretations. Dr. Schoenewolf's extensive research provides us with a number of indices: dreams by famous people (Hitler, Marilyn Monroe), dreams from psychotherapeutic literature (Freud's Wolf Man, Socarides's Masochist), and myths and fairy tales; another index links the dreams with personality and physical characteristics, and there is a glossary for quick reference to the meaning of dream symbols. This book warrants use in dream courses and belongs on every professional's reference shelf. -- David C. Belgray, Ph.D.
