Sigmund Freud regarded dreams as “the royal road to the unconscious,” and dreams long held an exalted place in psychoanalysis. In the late twentieth century, dreams received less attention. This book demonstrates that there is a resurgence in psychoanalysis of interest in dreams and presents a range of the outstanding current thinking and writing on this subject.
Highlights of the book include:

  • A sample dream examined by three expert commentators: Arlene Richards, Paul Lippmann, and Frank Summers
  • A tour-de-force account of the nature of dreams written by George Atwood
  • Studies by Joyce Slochower and Marilyn Charles of treatments that revolve around dreams
  • Major statements from Michael Robbins, Jorge Canestri, and Frank Summers on how dreams are understood today within psychoanalysis.
  • This book shows how dreams provide an entrée into the inner world. Dreams illuminate patients’ ways of experiencing life, their most powerful emotions, their guiding metaphors, and the dynamics between analyst and patient.
