Dream Logs: Dreams as a Creative Force in Freshman Composition and the Arts.
Chalpin, Lila
The keeping of a dream log can spark the imagination in freshman composition courses, giving students opportunities to be both creative artists and critics. With the emphasis more on using dreams than on interpreting them, students are free to explore the symbols and relevance of their dreams when creating written or musical compositions, films, paintings, sculptures, or photographic displays. Four major methods of interpretation--Freudian, Jungian, mystical or prophetic, and Gestalt--supply reference sources, while fiction, musical compositions, and various slides of art and photography provide examples of dream inspired creations.
