Description

`To sleep: perchance to dream'. As Freud and Jung have attempted to prove, there is great significance in all our dream matter, whether it be childhood or sex, success or peril. Dreams, daydreams, premonitions, and nightmares of all kinds have fired the imagination of writers and thinkers of every time and place. In this irresistible anthology, dreams realistic and reminiscent, poignant and pointless, funny and frightening are described and pondered by Coleridge, Emily and Charlotte Bront "e, Dostoevsky, Proust, Tolstoy, Daphne du Maurier, and Thomas Hardy, among many others. This book is intended for readers of literary anthologies; those interested in the subconscious, dreams, their interpretation and meaning.show more
