How to use Freuds Dream-work in literature

We must first grab the most we can from the text. Read through the whole thing to get a feel of it. Then we have to focus on the words that have a meaning on face value. After that try to find if theres any hidden meaning under that surface. Freud says that we cant ever fully solve a dream just the same way we cant fully understand an authors work even if we think we have enough tools in our disposal in finding a bunch of hidden meanings, we will not fully understand it. So the best thing to do is grab the most hidden messages and fine the best possible answer through the text.

    Good observation about not being ever able to “finish” reading a dream . . . so maybe there isn’t one final method to rely on.
