Jung’s ideas on what the hidden messages behind dreams mean. According to Jung, “Our darkest dreams might contain imagery that illustrate our internal conflicts and point to their cure as well” (Para. 8). In order to test his theory, Jung experimented by dialoguing his fantasy and dream images as if they were real life characters in the day-world. Jung called this process “active imagination.” In his autobiography Memories, Dreams, Reflections Jung wrote in detail about his actual experience and how he merged his terrifying encounters with his psyche to create his lasting theories about conscious and unconscious ideas.
How Dreams Affect Reality In the works of Chester Himes there is an underlying theme of dreaming. Throughout his various stories Himes uses dreams to function as a retreat for his characters. In his short story “The Meanest Cop in the World”, Himes is able to concoct an entire story that is descriptive and lifelike, which the readers just assume is real.

Over the last couple of days in class we have discussed F. Scott Fitzgerald’s short story “Winter Dreams”. This short story explores several themes such as reality vs idealism and over expectations. These themes communicates through the use of various literary devices such as irony, symbolism, allegories and imagery.

May her memory be blessed. In “The Raven”, Edgar Allan Poe uses many literary devices to create the author’s mood. Poe uses repetition the most to create a focal point on the most important phrases of each stanza. Other important literary devices that Poe exploits in his poem include allusion and internal rhyme.

Society and humanity can be sweet, sweet things, until they inevitably go sour. At least, this is how William Golding portrays the two in the book Lord of the Flies. Throughout history every conflict, big or small, has been based on disagreements. These disagreements are society's fatal flaw because it is nearly impossible to please everyone.

Aggressiveness and pleasure are unpredictable in regards to her sadistic ambitions for humiliating others, such as Stella and Mitch.
