We all dream, and we all want to know what’s the meaning that behind our dreams. And maybe we have noticed some explanations, such as if you dream of a snake, it means that you are going to be lucky. But it’s too tough, and it can’t foretell the future. I mean, a real explanation is far more difficult and complicated. And that is what Freud called, the interpretation of dreams. To interpret a dream, we need to know why we dream. According to Freud, all the dreams are the fulfillment of wish. Or you can say that “I think, therefore I dream.” But most of the time, we can’t find our wishes easily in the dream, and we may even find that what we dream is just what we don’t wish. This is another pattern of the dream, which is called Distortion. As we know, our wishes are not always accepted by ourselves, such as greed, jealous and sex. So when we are asleep, these wished are changed into metaphors. They can be an image, an action, or an object. After then, they mix up and become a dream, and our wishes are fulfilled. So the interpretation of dreams suggests us to analyze these metaphors, seeking their potential connection, considering the daily life of the dreamer, and finally conclude a convincing interpretation. But as we can see, there’re so many uncertain factors. For example, we don’t know whether the meaning of each metaphor is right or wrong, and the interpretation can differ from different readers of the dream. They’re all true. And that’s why we should regard our…

Chosen Persona/ Text: Bram Stoker ~ ‘Dracula’ (1897)
Indeed, I’m sure you all know that in my day women had few rights. Not only were women denied the vote, they were denied the right to express themselves openly. They were expected to be pure, pleasant, and supportive of men at all times. It makes you think, what were we really scared of?
But then, my dear fellows, then came the gothic, a movement that sought to change all that was.…

Running Head: DREAMS
State Fair Community College

Dreams can have varying natures, such as frightening, exciting, magical, melancholic, adventurous, or sexual. Dreams can, at times, make a creative thought occur to a person or be a sense of inspiration…
perspective. An analysis of the data engages with the interpretation of the meanings of
people’s behavior, practices and actions. According to the Hammersley and Atkinson
(2007,3) perspective “analysis of data involves interpretation of meanings, functions, and
consequences of human actions and institutional practices, and how these are implicated
in local, and perhaps also wider, contexts”.
Data analysis and interpretation are required to convey order and understanding. Data
The interpretation I did was on lines 52-89 of act III scene I. This begins with Hamlet’s famous quote “To be or not to be.”
Hamlet enters, speaking thoughtfully and agonizingly to himself about the question of whether to commit suicide to end the pain of experience: “To be, or not to be: that is the question.” He says that the miseries of life are such that no one would willingly bear them, except that they are afraid of “something after death.”…
Why Do We Dream?
Modern Theories of Dreaming
By Rebecca Turner Lucid Dream Forum
Why do we dream? Ancient civilizations saw dreams as portals for receiving wisdom from the gods. In modern psychology, Sigmund Freud famously theorized that dreams were the "royal road to the unconscious". Modern theories suggest it's not as complicated as that. Are we getting closer to understanding dreams?
Freud - aka the father of dream research - gave psychoanalysis as one explanation for why we dream. But Freud…
