Synopses & Reviews
Gustavus Hindman Millers groundbreaking masterwork, published nearly a century ago, remains the most compelling and thorough study of all the symbols that appear in our dreamscape. Updated, beautifully designed, and wonderfully easy to follow, its an invaluable source of information, and key to understanding the unconscious impulses that guide us. Miller offers an enlightening introduction to dreams in history, dream types (spiritual, mixed, and allegorical), and to prescient dreams that provide a privileged glimpse into the future. The visual symbols themselves, accompanied by an array of splendid color drawings, photographs, and boxed sidebars, are divided into elegantly logical categories, from the animal kingdom to rocks and minerals, body and soul to birth and death, food and drink to clothes and jewelry. Everything is extensively cross-referenced, making it easy to look up the thousands of dream elements and solve the mysteries buried deep in the unconscious.
