`To sleep: perchance to dream'. As Freud and Jung have attempted to prove, there is great significance in all our dream matter, whether it be childhood or sex, success or peril. Dreams, daydreams, premonitions, and nightmares of all kinds have fired the imagination of writers and thinkers of every time and place. In this irresistible anthology, dreams realistic and reminiscent, poignant and pointless, funny and frightening are described and pondered by Coleridge, Emily and Charlotte Bront "e, Dostoevsky, Proust, Tolstoy, Daphne du Maurier, and Thomas Hardy, among many others. This book is intended for readers of literary anthologies; those interested in the subconscious, dreams, their interpretation and meaning.

Review:

Review from previous edition A rich fabric of dreaming ... from Latin poets to Louis MacNiece and Yeats ... A truly remarkable assembly (Elizabeth Jennings, Spectator)

a splendid collection ... Stephen Brook could hardly have done the job better (Rosemary Dinnage, TLS)

an ideal companion for the bedside (Time)

Anthologies which transcend themselves and can stand as organic books making serious statements about life [are] very rare, but Stephen Brook's Oxford Book of Dreams is of their number. (Paul Binding, New Statesman)
