Abstract

Dreams hold a particular interest in the minds of literary authors across recorded history. Long looked at as messages of prophecy or visions from the gods, it was not until the 20th century that dreams began to be studied for their psychological impact on the human brain. With an analysis of dream interpretation, the usage of dreams throughout creative fiction give writers the ability to craft characters with a deeper sense of characterization that cannot be otherwise achieved through normal means. With this important tool in hand, this creative thesis uses dreams as a method of characterization while analyzing how it has been used throughout other works of modern-day fiction.
