In his introduction to this edition of Dream Analysis, Masud Khan concludes: "I know of few books that comprehend Freud's message with such clarity and acumen as Ella Sharpe's". In it she illustrates the various mechanisms of the dream as formulated by Freud, and examines in detail many different types of dream. She uses this examination to show what contribution dream analysis makes to the understanding of psychical problems.Dr Harold Stewart, senior British psychoanalyst, writes: "After The Interpretation of Dreams this book is perhaps the most valuable on this topic in the psychoanalytic literature. It is based on a series of lectures given to students in training in the 30's, and is addressed to those engaged in practical therapy. I strongly recommend it to all those who, with Freud and Sharpe, believe that dream analysis has a special place in our techniques for exploring the unconscious".
