The Study of Dreams

Botticelli, 'The Birth of Venus' (detail), 1486

"The interpretation of dreams is the Via Regia to the knowledge of the unconscious in mental life."


Antonio Canova, 'Psyche Revived by Cupid's Kiss', 1793

                                "O God. I could be bounded in a nutshell,

                                  and count myself king of infinite space,

                                  were it not that I have bad dreams."


                                                                        Shakespeare, Hamlet



                                                                        "We are such stuff

                                    As dreams are made on, and our little life

                                    Is rounded with a sleep."

                                                                        Skakespeare, The Tempest

The Globe Theatre, Shakespearean crucible of dreams

"What if in your sleep you dreamed, and what if in your dream you went to heaven and there plucked a strange and beautiful flower? And what if when you awoke you had the flower in your hand?"


                                                                            Samuel Taylor Coleridge 

Asclepius, Greek god of dreams

"All this fires my soul, and, provided I am not disturbed, my subject enlarges itself, becomes methodized and defined, and the whole, though it be long, stands almost complete and finished in my mind, so that I can survey it, like a fine picture or a beautiful statue, at a glance. Nor do I hear in my imagination the parts successfully, but I hear them, as it were, all at once. What a delight this is I cannot tell. All this inventing, this producing, takes place in a pleasing lively dream."


                                                                                            Mozart, 1878

Apollo, Greek deity of dreams

"One night I dreamed I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, content with my lot. Suddenly I awoke and I was Chuang-tzu again. Who am I in reality? A butterfly dreaming that I am Chuang-tzu or Chuang-tzu imagining he was a butterfly?"

                                                                            Chuang-tzu, 3rd c. BC
