Dreams and Atrocity: The Oneiric in Representations of Trauma (Hardcover)
This volume examines the relationship between oneiric and historical episodes of atrocity in twentieth- and twenty-first-century art, film, literature and theatre. Examining the political and aesthetic power harnessed by dreams in dark times, it takes as its subject the significance granted to the oneiric beyond Freudian psychoanalysis.
