Langston Hughes’ “Harlem” paints a concurrently faint and brilliant picture of the human response to unresolved dreams. He does not specifically address what effect “a dream deferred” has on the human attitude, but knowingly implies that whatever influences a dream will always touch the human creator. The name of the poem itself points to the historical sector of New York called a Harlem, a place where African Americans‟ creative prospects were mocked and denied; a place where the human soul’s ingenuity was frequently overcome. In “Harlem,” Langston Hughes uses simile, diction, and stanza form to illustrate that “dreams deferred” deflate and aggravate the human spirit. After beginning the poem with the question, “What happens to a dream deferred?” Hughes starts to answer that question in the following lines through the use of simile and diction.
We are finally able to establish what dreams mean as well as why we have dreams. II. Recently two famous dream theorists Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung have changed the way we analyze and study our dreams and because of their studies on dreams it has had an impact on the human mind. A. There are a vast amount of symbols that is in our Dream Dictionary that gives a dreamer a chance to become more aware of their inner self and insight on what is going on and needs to be attended to.
Basketball is usually played indoors, but it does not need to be. Each team tries to score by shooting the ball through the other team goal at each end of the court, above their heads. The goal is a round hoop and net called a basketball. The team scoring the most wins the game. I am a Lakers fan; it was a championship game between Lakers (Kobe Bryant) and Miami (Lebron James) on 31 Jan 2011.
In this soliloquy, Claudius Since all of the 7 actors were male, and only 3 having done GCSE drama, we decided to be experimental. We decided to incorporate basketball into our workshop performance of Hamlet. The workshop performance was set out as a basketball game to create a more competitive atmosphere: 6 different actors performing different soliloquies, and one Claudius (me) performing his soliloquy. We adopted the idea of using the concept of Claudius being Hamlet’s “opposition”. Since 6 actors were each delivering a different soliloquy, we formed the play to represent an actual basketball game; 6 Hamlets against 1 Claudius.
Freud’s theory has some downsides, for example Freud said that dreams can only be interpreted by trained psychologists, but many psychologists believe that this is not the case because dreams are very subjective so to try and analyse and interpret someone else’s dream is nearly impossible, also the dream itself may not be told in the same way it actually happened so the analyst may misinterpret the meaning because he/she doesn’t know everything in the patient’s life. There are other psychologists that disagree with Freud’s purpose of dreams e.g. Crick and Mitchison claim that we dream to get rid of unwanted memories that we have collected throughout the day. But in favour of

To dream is to acknowledge, realize, or admonish something. As the great philosopher Sigmund Freud once theorized: when we dream, we are making wishes come true. Dreams can be interpreted many different ways. The way we interoperate or dreams can have a like altering effect on who and what we are. Throughout the novel “Demian” by Hermann Hesse, the main character Emil Sinclair struggles to find himself while interoperating his dreams.
This can include a home, a career or a lifestyle. Reality is a state of something being actual or true and it often does not live up to the dreams people hold. Arthur Miller explores and contrasts these two elements throughout Death of a Salesman using various characters. Daydreams, fantasies and past memories are utilised as a mechanism to show the differences between realistic dreams and the dreams that can destroy a soul. In this essay, I am going to discuss the contrasts of Miller’s use of dream and reality throughout the Death of a Salesman.
During the 1920s, basketball, like everything, boomed and formed a following as minor leagues everywhere were hosted in arenas, and gyms. But when the Great Depression hit the US and the US involvement with World War II began shortly after the Berlin Olympics, the leagues fell apart as the players and the audience were swept into the war. From this difficult environment a group of arena owners, looking to fill their venues, saw the popularity of college basketball and established the Basketball Association of America (BAA) in 1946. The concept was to take the college athletes that had a history of basketball in America and bring them to face each other. The new league had mixed results, selling out arenas spottily mainly from fans who wanted to see George Mikan and others who wanted to see the Harlem Globetrotters, the opening act for some games.
Freudian theory states dreams are triggered by unacceptable repressed wishes, often of a sexual nature. Dreams we experience are merely disguised versions of our real dreams. Hobson’s activation-synthesis theory states that the information supplied to the cortex during REM sleep is largely random and the resulting dream is the cortex’s effort to make sense of these random signals (Pinel 2009). Conclusion I agree with the activation-synthesis theory. I do not believe dreams are triggered by unacceptable repressed wishes of a sexual nature.
