The Dreamers is a literary pastiche and travesty, the club that is formed merely an excuse to make good fun of the literary stylings (and stylers) of Bangs' day. A group of characters are convinced that literary inspiration comes in dreams. They decide to form a club, meeting once a month to consume a marvelous meal, then head home to sleep -- and dream. The plan is then to record the dreams, and read the results at the next meeting.
The beginning amusingly reveals the misconceptions the group labours under: most of the difficulty of writing, they're sure, is in the mechanical setting down of the words on the page -- a problem they surmount through the use of a stenographer. Creative writing ? "These things require very little intellectual labor", they believe -- and if anyone could prove this claim, they could.
