The standard edition of Sigmund Freud's classic work on the psychology and significance of dreams

What are the most common dreams and why do we have them? What does a dream about death mean? What do dreams of swimming, failing, or flying symbolize?

First published in 1899, Sigmund Freud's groundbreaking book, The Interpretation of Dreams , explores why we dream and why dreams matter in our psychological lives. Delving into theories of manifest and latent dream content, the special language of dreams, dreams as wish fulfillments, the significance of childhood experiences, and much more, Freud offers an incisive and enduringly relevant examination of dream psychology. Encompassing dozens of case histories and detailed analyses of actual dreams, this landmark work grants us unique insight into our sleeping experiences.

Renowned for translating Freud's German writings into English, James Strachey--with the assistance of Freud's daughter Anna--first published this edition in 1953. Incorporating all textual alterations made by Freud over a period of thirty years, it remains the most complete translation of the work in print

Brilliant intro but very unclear, too literal translation. One must also understand that this tome is more for the specialist reader with a serious interest in dream psychology. The more general reader will find more rewarding material in Totem and Taboo, Three Contributions to Child Sexuality or Civilization and its Discontents.
