The world of dreams is one that the majority of people take for granted. Ignored by most and usually written off as a nonsensical mish-mash of meaningless images, people tend not to consider them important, useful, or revelatory. In this classic volume, Havelock Ellis delves deeply into the realm of dreams to explore their scientific and ethnographic value. Ellis argues that, by examining our dreams, we can learn something of ourselves and even that of primitive man, the mechanisms of belief, and much more. A fascinating study not to be missed by those with an interest in dreams and what can be learnt from them. Henry Havelock Ellis (1859–1939) was an English physician, writer, eugenicist and social reformer who studied human sexuality. Ellis was also an early researcher into the effects of psychedelics and wrote one of the first reports on a mescaline experience in 1896. Other notable works by this author include: “A Study of British Genius” (1904), “The Dance of Life” (1923), and “Psychology of Sex” (1933). Read & Co. Great Essays is republishing this classic essay now in a new edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.

This book explores how Shakespeare uses images of dreams and sleep to define his dramatic worlds.
Author: Claude Fretz
Publisher: Springer Nature
Category: Literary Criticism
This book explores how Shakespeare uses images of dreams and sleep to define his dramatic worlds. Surveying Shakespeare’s comedies, tragedies, histories, and late plays, it argues that Shakespeare systematically exploits early modern physiological, religious, and political understandings of dreams and sleep in order to reshape conventions of dramatic genre, and to experiment with dream-inspired plots. The book discusses the significance of dreams and sleep in early modern culture, and explores the dramatic opportunities that this offered to Shakespeare and his contemporaries. It also offers new insights into how Shakespeare adapted earlier literary models of dreams and sleep – including those found in classical drama, in medieval dream visions, and in native English dramatic traditions. The book appeals to academics, students, teachers, and practitioners in the fields of literature, drama, and cultural history, as well as to general readers interested in Shakespeare’s works and their cultural context.
