In the blitz of dreams: mass-observation and the historical uses of dream reports
Tyrus Miller, pages -

Abstract

Methodological and interpretative problems contributed to a relative failure of the Mass Observation dream project to identify ‘dominant images’; and, contrary to expectations, the project showed no evidence that the air-war years significantly affected the British psyche. Miller argues that dreams represent a form of indirect communication of that which is repressed in a society, and serve as testimony to forces that remain hidden in more official forms of documentation, and they should therefore be considered historically relevant.
