Sigmund Freud said that dreams are a window into the subconscious. This book is not only a valuable guide to the interpretation of dreams, but also goes much further than typical dream books to include a vast array of literature, folklore and film references about dreams, proving that while dreams may be a window on the soul, they are also a lens through which we can understand society and culture as well.
This marvelously researched illustrated volume contains sections covering: a sampler of dreams and dreaming; dreams and science: religion, magic and dreams: dreams in art, literature and folklore: dreams and cinema: a treasury of short stories about dreams: and a section on the interpretation of dreams.
As always Dr. Ashley’s unique prose style will appeal to both scholarly and popular audiences alike.
