Sigmund Freud said that dreams are a window into the subconscious. This book is t 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 thoroughly researched illustrated volume contains sections covering dreams and dreaming. Dr. Ashley's unique prose style will appeal to both scholarly and popular audiences alike.
