Dream Narratives
9 units (3-0-6)  | first term
Dream narratives reveal as much about cultural beliefs and superstitions as they do about techniques of narration and interpretation. This course investigates key developments in the literature on dreams and dream interpretations during a time period when they were subjected to competing religious and scientific interpretations. Examples will focus on the time period between the Renaissance and the Enlightenment and will include texts by Descartes, Calderon, Shakespeare, and Diderot.
