Dreams: Visions of the Night
An interesting multidimensional look at dreams. The first part of the book is a survey of perspectives in writing, and the second part is a survey through images and art. It did make me start thinking more about the nature and importance of dreams. William Blake's image of "the man who instructed Mr. Blake in Painting in his Dreams" is just plain eerie, and the final image that Grandville produced (how did I not hear of Grandville before?) has become an object of fascination for me.
