by C. G. Jung
Part of the Routledge Classics series
Author, psychiatrist and scholar, painter, world traveler, and above all visionary dreamer, Carl Jung was one of the great figures of the twentieth century.
A comprehensive compilation of his work on dreams, this popular book is without parallel.
Skilfully weaving a narrative that encompasses all of his major themes - mysticism, religion, culture and symbolism - Jung brings a wealth of allusion to the collection.
He identifies such issues as the filmic quality of some dreams, and the differences between 'personal dreams' - dreams that exist on the individual level - and 'big dreams' - dreams that we all experience, that come from the collective unconscious.
Dreams provides the perfect introduction to his concepts to those unfamiliar with Jung's work.
Perfectly illuminating his user-friendly approach to life, Dreams is the ideal addition to any Jung collection.

Review by isabelx
A selection of Jung's writings about dreams. As it includes articles from various parts of his career, some are more critical of Freudian ideas about dream analysis than others and there is rather a lot of overlap between the articles. It gets quite technical, and the comparisons to alchemy did get quite wearisome in the latter part of the book.
