Overview

"The Fabric of Dreams," by Katherine Taylor Craig, is a very comprehensive survey of the whole subject of dreams. The author, who is a well-known student of the occult, has omitted nothing of consequence from her review of the attitude of both the learned and the ignorant world toward dreams from the days of antiquity to the scientific theories of today. Among the moderns she makes frequent reference to or quotations from the works of Jung, Freud, Morton Prince, Havelock Ellis, Stanley Hall, Boris Sidis, and many others, using their theories in explanation of dream phenomena, comparing their conclusions and discussing their ideas. Modern mystics, such as Mme. Blavatsky, William Sharp, William Blake, add their quota of interest, and there are extracts from and references to many men and women of note during recent years in literature, science, religion, art, and philosophy. The literature and history of the ancient Greeks and Romans are drawn upon for their various explanations and discussions of dreams and numberless personal happenings and beliefs are recorded. The Hebrews of antiquity, the Hindus, the Gipsies of all times, the civilization of the Middle Ages, are all put under tribute to make complete the story of how man in all times has looked upon his dreams. There are chapters on dreams that have come true, dream analysis and interpretation, drugs and plants that have been used to induce dreams, the mystery of sleep, neurasthenia versus the sixth sense, symbolism in dreams, and the ancient art of geomancy.
