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 by Sigmund Freud in 1899, The Interpretation of Dreams considers why we dream and what it means in the larger picture of 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, widely considered the father of psychoanalysis, thoroughly and thoughtfully examines dream psychology. Encompassing dozens of case histories and detailed analyses of actual dreams, this landmark text presents Freud's legendary work as a tool for comprehending our sleeping experiences.

Renowned for translating Freud's German writings into English, James Strachey--with the assistance of Anna Freud--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.

In addition to Freud's groundbreaking text, meticulously edited, this magnificent volume includes an introduction and 16 essays by noted author and Freud scholar Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson. Relevant excerpts from such psychoanalytical writers as Jung, Lacan, and Horney illuminate Freud's theories, and an illustrated detailed biography shines a light on Freud's life and times. Exquisite art from many Modernist and Surrealist artists appear throughout, and Masson's sidebars appear as booklets “hidden” in the full-spread artwork.
