Dreams

Rating: 2.9

Here we are all, by day; by night we're hurl'd
By dreams, each one into a several world.

It seems quite straightforward to me. Why Straw et al want to stand it on it's head I don't know. Just contrariness, perhaps. Dreams are mostly a side-effect of internal housekeeping of the brain, to do with transferring memories from short-term to long-term storage etc. They don't usually make sense, though this is an over-simplification.

But I think it not only in dreams, individualism shows us the rest of social compromise we are always in different world, we exist. Here in the poem dream is the word, limiting the perception...Otherwise the writing supplies oxygen to a reader of feeling poetry by heart....................................................

As usual Pruchnicki mistakes my comment and ignores the fact that it was no more than a suggestion. Freudian psychology deals with the symbolic nature of dream - and symbols are indicative of a shared consciousness. When we are awake we are (especially in the West) always attempting to emphasise our individual uniqueness. When dreams take us over, we lose control of our consciousness, and, perhaps, engage with that deeper world which is common to us all.

I wonder if Carl Jung read this poem, for it screams-Collective Unconscious!
