On Freud's "Creative writers and day-dreaming" by Sigmund Freud( Book )

13 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First presented as an informal lecture in 1907, "Creative Writers and Day-dreaming" pursues two lines of inquiry: it explores the origins of daydreaming and its relation to the play of children, and it investigates the creative process.

Their essays place Freud's paper in historical context, describe the clinical value of daydreams and fantasies, offer a Kleinian view of fantasy, provide analytic approaches to creativity and fantasy, comment on the ambiguity caused by multiple translations of Freud's text, and reframe the idea of fantasy from a modern biological and developmental approach
