NOTE
The present edition is a reprint of that included in Vols. IV and V of the
Standard Edition, London, 1953 (The Hogarth Press and The Institute
of Psycho-Analysis). A few additional notes will be found on p. 623. The
editor is deeply indebted to Miss Anna Freud for her unfailing help and
criticism at every stage of the work.

Praise for Sigmund Freud’s 
The Interpretation of Dreams
“Freud’s classic. Freud has been a dominant force in Western
thinking and here’s the book that started it all.”
—Psychology Today
“[An] epoch-making book.”
—The Economist
“Today, those practicing quicker therapies and psychopharmacology
outnumber psychoanalysts, but Dr. Freud is indisputably
with us, informing the very way we think about being human.”
—Life magazine
“Freud’s achievement was to give a name to the fears of his age.”
—New Statesman
“At the beginning of our century, the publication of The Interpretation
of Dreams changed our everyday perception of that
essential component of human existence.”
—The Daily Mail
“Sigmund Freud’s The Interpretation of Dreams sold fewer than
400 copies in its first six years, but the fires it lit are still blazing.”
—Brooke Gladstone, co-host and managing editor,
NPR’s On the Media
