The first-ever history of the representation of dreams in Western painting, illustrated with works by more than 130 artists Organized by period, from the Middle Ages to the present, this engaging book shows how the idea of the dream, and its depictions, have shifted throughout history, from the biblical dream--a communication from God--to the deeply personal dream, the lighthearted fantasy, the nightmare. Sometimes these ideas have existed simultaneously: thus we have, only a few years apart, Raphael's limpid High Renaissance composition of Jacob dreaming his Ladder; Albrecht D�rer's watercolor of a mysterious deluge that he saw in his own slumbers; and Hieronymus Bosch's nightmarish hellscapes. More recently, movements such as Symbolism and Surrealism have taken the dream as a primary source of inspiration, even conflating dreaming and the creative process itself. This rich vein of visionary art runs from Gustave Moreau and Odilon Redon, through De Chirico and Dal�, down to the present--demonstrating, as Bergez reminds us, that Morpheus was a god of form as well as of dreams.

Calloused by the harsh experiences from her youth, Jacquelyn “Jaycie” Brooks sought change. A new adoptive last name, different hair color, and piercings afforded the teen some semblance of escape in the time following her personal tragedy – even if only superficially. Jaded from her grim history, Jaycie watched the world with an unsympathetic scrutiny until a reminder of her past forced her to reevaluate her perspective. The reappearance of Gabe, the childhood friend she had been separated from for nearly five years, reignites her former identity, but she quickly realizes that their reunion is not without hardship. Gabe has been struggling with his own sense of purpose after losing the arm that fostered his artistic talent, but Jaycie’s attempts to help the broken man are exhausting and leave little room for her own escalating problems. In an attempt to flee reality, the duo embarks on a journey, but the price for such an adventure might be more than Jaycie bargained for. Amid reconnecting with Gabe and the continued battle with the demons of her past, she finds herself in a compromising situation. Stuck between her past and present worlds, Jaycie will learn the painful truth of consequence. Navigating through a web of deceit and emotional trauma, neither Gabe nor Jaycie is fully prepared for the path ahead, and that naivety may cost Jaycie dearly.

Antiquity Theatre and the Painting of Henry Fuseli

The rediscovery of Pompeii and Herculaneum in the eighteenth century challenged European assumptions about ancient life; just as influential, if quieter, was the revolution caused by translations of Greek tragedy. Art of the mid-eighteenth to early nineteenth centuries dealt with the violence and seeming irrationality of tragic action as an account of the rituals and beliefs of a foreign culture, worshipping strange gods and enacting unfamiliar customs. The result was a focus on the radical difference of the past which, however, was thought to still have something to teach us: not how to live better, but that we live differently and should allow others to do so as well. In recognizing tragedy as an alien cultural form, modern Europe recognized its own historical status as one culture among many. Naturally, this insight was resisted. Greek tragedy was seldom performed. In painting, it lived a shadow existence alongside more didactic subject matter, emerging explicitly only in a corpus of wash drawings by Anglo-Swiss artist Henry Fuseli (1741-1825), and an international circle of artists active in Rome in the 1770s. In this volume, Pop examines Fuseli as exemplary of a pluralist classicism, paying especial attention to his experiments with moral and aesthetic conventions in the more private medium of drawing. He analyses this broad view of culture through the lens of Fuseli's life and work; his remarkable acquaintances Emma Hamilton, Erasmus Darwin, and Mary Wollstonecraft, and the great theorists of art and morals to whom he responded, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Johann Joachim Winckelmann, and David Hume, play prominent roles in this investigation of how antiquity became modern.

A clinical psychologist offers a revolutionary approach to dream analysis—through artistic expression: “A jewel.”—Robert A. Johnson, author of Inner Work Dream books that guide readers to work with their dreams invariably ask them to write their dreams down, or perhaps record them. The Art of Dreaming stands apart from all other dream books in that it invites readers to work with their dreams in whatever medium is most natural and beneficial to them. For some, that might in fact be writing or talking, but for others it might be drawing or painting or working in clay or dancing or dramatizing or recreating movement or maskmaking or working in multimedia or creating poetry. This book is a beautiful integration of dreaming and creativity, one that takes readers to a place where they can work with both the essential and deep messages from their dreams. The book makes use of illustrative icons to clearly indicate to readers the art medium for each activity, enabling them to go directly to the type of activity that most appeals to them. “Mellick, a clinical psychologist and registered expressive arts therapist, details a multitude of ways to decipher your dreams…describes visual, vocal, and theatrical methods for cracking imagery.”—Library Journal

"Dream Reader brings together in one long-awaited volume the most significant and current psychoanalytic papers on dreams written since World War II. In this regard, it fills a great need, since until now there has been no omnibus volume of representative psychoanalytic articles on dreams or dreaming to which the analyst, psychologist, psychiatrist, or social worker could refer. Nor has there been a work to which the analyst or dream investigator could turn for a succinct current overview of the field. In addition, the editors offer valuable evaluative introductions to each of the nine sections, highlighting the nature of each article and commenting on its role in the particular section."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Dreams Like Enigmatic Paintings

Henri Michaux, Belgian poet, writer and painter, finally published his Dreams Like Enigmatic Paintings (En revant a partir de peintures eigmatiques) in 1972. The text is a series of dreamscapes which came to him having seen a few of Magritte's paintings. It is not an interpretation of Magritte, but a logical continuation of Michaux's own work in poetic form. Michaux's style of writing has the intimacy of a dream journal, and yet the distance of a chronicler of dislocation. He is not comfortable to read, not only in the form of his writing, but also in the psychotic edginess of his narrative. I have tried to maintain this balance in my translation, avoiding the temptation to save the reader from undue ease. Michael Eales has an MA in Literary Translation
