Subject Description
This subject explores the role of dreaming in literature and film: how dreaming is represented in literary and cinematic texts, how it has inspired writing and film-making, and how texts have attempted to reproduce the chaotic structure and dense symbolism of dreams and nightmares. Taking a literary-historical approach and examining the idea of tradition, the subject ranges from medieval dream-visions, through Shakespeare's dream-stage, Romantic dream-verse and the Freudian revolution, to Surrealist-influenced film and contemporary literature.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate a strong grasp of the historicity of notions and interpretations of dreams
2. Understand the creative relationship between dreaming and writing, giving careful attention to how writers and film-makers understand their practice in relation to the experience of dreaming & how they use formal techniques to create dream-texts of various forms
3. Engage in confident and appropriate application of relevant theoretical concepts and interpretative frameworks to the primary texts studied and understand the intellectual, ethical and ideological implications of applying these concepts and frameworks
4. Understand the relationship between the primary texts and their historical, intertextual and ideological contexts
