The Victorian period witnessed the beginning of a debate on the status of animals that continues today. This volume explicitly acknowledges the way twenty-first-century deliberations about animal rights and the fact of past and prospective animal extinction haunt the discussion of the Victorians' obsession with animals. Combining close attention to historical detail with a sophisticated analytical framework, the contributors examine the various forms of human dominion over animals, including imaginative possession of animals in the realms of fiction, performance, and the visual arts, as well as physical control as manifest in hunting, killing, vivisection and zookeeping. The diverse range of topics, analyzed from a contemporary perspective, makes the volume a significant contribution to Victorian studies. The conclusion by Harriet Ritvo, the pre-eminent authority in the field of Victorian/animal studies, provides valuable insight into the burgeoning field of animal studies and points toward future studies of animals in the Victorian period.

From Barbara Kingsolver, the acclaimed author of Flight Behavior, The Lacuna, The Bean Trees, and other modern classics, Animal Dreams is a passionate and complex novel about love, forgiveness, and one woman’s struggle to find her place in the world. At the end of her rope, Codi Noline returns to her Arizona home to face her ailing father, with whom she has a difficult, distant relationship. There she meets handsome Apache trainman Loyd Peregrina, who tells her, “If you want sweet dreams, you’ve got to live a sweet life.” Filled with lyrical writing, Native American legends, a tender love story, and Codi’s quest for identity, Animal Dreams is literary fiction at it’s very best.

Animal Dreams

The best book I have ever read on relations between humans and animals and the ‘redress’ we owe them.

Animal Dreams collects David Brooks’ thought-provoking essays about how humans think, dream and write about other species. Brooks examines how animals have featured in Australian and international literature and culture, from ‘The Man from Snowy River’ to Rainer Maria Rilke and The Turin Horse, to live-animal exports, veganism, and the culling of native and non-native species. In his piercing, elegant, widely celebrated style, he considers how private and public conversations about animals reflect older and deeper attitudes to our own and other species, and what questions we must ask to move these conversations forward, in what he calls ‘the immense work of undoing’. For readers interested in animal welfare, conservation, and the relationship between humans and other species, Animal Dreams will be an essential, richly rewarding companion. Praise for Animal Dreams ‘one of Australia’s most skilled, unusual and versatile writers’ – Peter Pierce, The Sydney Morning Herald. ‘No one writes about animals like David Brooks.’ – Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson (author of The Assault on Truth, When Elephants Weep and Lost Companions) ‘Beautifully written and emotionally and intellectually enthralling. The best book I have ever read on relations between humans and animals and the ‘redress’ we owe them. It makes you angry, it makes you weep; it makes you determined to rethink and to act.’ – Helen Tiffin, FAHA (co-author of The Empire Writes Back and Wild Man from Borneo: A Cultural History of the Orangutang)

You might be wondering how it is possible to write an entire book on fish from a psychological standpoint. Apart from the biological creatures which are, in themselves, fascinating creatures, there is a rich palette of traditional folklore, fairy tales and mythological stories about fish. It is, therefore, not surprising that the fish often rises up out of the depths of the soul of modern man into his dreams. We all dream, even if we are often not aware of it. We also know that both man and animals become ill if they are prevented from dreaming over a longer period of time. Thus, we may assume that, in some unknown way, dreaming keeps us healthy. Modern Depth Psychology has shown us that dreams produce images or symbols that convey meaning. This helps us to better understand both our own human nature and the nature of our invisible companions who influence our destiny. In this sense, dreams are a source of self-knowledge. On a collective level, they can provide us with information about our vital, inner, spiritual processes that shape both our culture and our communal lives. The fish is an especially meaningful symbol that appears to be pointing towards a possible, fundamental psychic renewal of our time from out of the depths of the unconscious psyche. The author investigates these themes in important dreams had by people today. Whilst moving within the field of dream interpretation and Depth Psychology, the book is also accessible to the interested layperson.

Animals and Animal Dreams

In this book we look at animal dreams as a symbolic expression of the instinctual, that is, unconscious psychic functioning of man, which is crucial for the well-being of both the individual and the society.

On the basis of a lifelong relationship with cats, dogs, and horses, Regina Abt a graduate of the Zurich C.G. Jung Institute in 1985 who worked for many years with Dr. M.-L. von Franz, has the ability to understand the dream motifs of cat, dog, and horse in their unique and life-guiding ways. The personal and archetypal dimension of the psyche is nourished by this book. Animals in dreams tell us something about our own inner instinctual nature from which civilized man has increasingly distanced himself. They provide indications as to how we can once again show due respect for this instinctual life energy with its hidden knowledge, and also show us where we underestimate and violate them. In this book we look at animal dreams as a symbolic expression of the instinctual, that is, unconscious psychic functioning of man, which is crucial for the well-being of both the individual and the society.

Animal Life In Nature Myth and Dreams

This book is a study of animals-their natural history, mythology, folklore, and religious significance around the world as well as their role in our lives, dreams, and everyday language.

In Animal Life in Nature, Myth and Dreams, Elizabeth Caspari connects the world of real, living animals with the symbolic world of animal images in human thought, both conscious and unconscious. She gives the reader an opportunity to make this connection on his or her own personal journey of discovery. This book is a study of animals-their natural history, mythology, folklore, and religious significance around the world as well as their role in our lives, dreams, and everyday language. It examines the symbolic impact animals have on our collective culture, particularly on our own personal and interior lives. From Albatross to Zebra, each animal is pictured in color and factual context is given about its behavior in the natural world. Information is included about habitat, distribution, weight, size, longevity, and classification. By drawing on a process of amplification developed by C.G. Jung, in which an image is related to a previous historical, mythological, religious, or ethnological context, Animal Life in Nature, Myth and Dreams discusses the meaning of the animal in a dream, amplifying the reader's understanding of that animal. Intended for anyone interested in the actual behavior and nature of animals and the world we live in, Animal Life presents a good deal of ethological and mythological material. By contemplating the significance of our fellow creatures, and how everything in our universe is connected, Animal Life offers a more whole, and more healing, view of the world. Fully illustrated in color.

A guide to co-dreaming with animals for personal and planetary evolution • Presents lucid dream encounters with living polar bears and teachings from polar bear spirits • Explores ways to consciously engage with dreams, co-dream with animals through shared awareness, and form human-animal dream relationships • Reveals the role of human-polar bear dreaming in the Earth’s planetary evolution Dreams speak to us on deep levels. Through dreaming we open a gateway to our inner world. Through lucid dreaming we open to conscious interaction with the surroundings, happenings, and living beings within the dreamscape. Over many years, animal communicator Dawn Baumann Brunke dreamed of polar bears. One night, a lucid dream triggered the realization that not only was she dreaming of a living polar bear but also that the polar bear was dreaming of her. Through shared dream encounters, Brunke became adept at connecting with the bear both while asleep and awake. Together, they explored nonphysical locales where lucid dreamers meet to join in consciousness and co-dream together. Recounting the dreams she had with polar bears as well as with a council of spirit bears, Brunke presents techniques she learned to enter shared dreamscapes and form meaningful dream relationships with other species. Brunke also examines how our assumptions about polar bears, or any animal, can teach us about ourselves. As we awaken to the wisdom of our dreams, we begin to heal ourselves and our Earth. Sharing ways to recall dreams and engage lucid dream awareness, Brunke shows how dreamwork can help us forge deeper connections with the natural world and move more consciously in planetary evolution with all beings. Guided by the polar bears in her dreams, the sacred guardians of North Pole evolutionary energy, Brunke reveals how we can each dream ourselves awake and, with animal companions and guides, help dream a new world into being.
