Walter Benjamin

Publisher: Suhrkamp


A book that presents Walter Benjamin as both a great dreamer and an important theorist of dreams. This brings into focus a side of his work that has received little attention so far, but which played a central role in his writing and thinking. The first part contains Benjamin’s transcripts of his own dreams, the second his reflections on dream theory, ranging from short aphorisms to larger expositions on dream literature and the historicity of dreams to the political concept of “collective dreams” and their awakening.
