¶ "Mrs. Arnold- Forster, like Dr. Morton Prince, is inclined to reject the Freudian theory that all dreams are symbolic and usually signify repressed desire, particularly sex wishes. A much simpler explanation seems often entirely satisfactory, and she pleads for tho exercise of sober judgment and common sense in our studies of this subject. Surely, in this matter particularly, a good deal depends on the dreamer, and on his or her situation at the particular moment. We can surely all of us recall periods in our own lives in which we have repeatedly experienced wish-fulfilment dreams —sometimes connected with " a beloved object " and some- times of a more pedestrian kind. For example, many women when a child is to be born repeatedly dream stories in which the birth of the child is the principal feature ; at other moments they aro not aware of dreaming wish-fulfilment dreams. The subject is a fascinating one, and Mrs. Arnold-Forster has contributed an interesting volume to its growing literature." - from a review printed in THE SPECTATOR, 12 February 1921.
