The Lost Key





Lady X., after walking in a wood near her house in Ireland, found that

she had lost an important key. She dreamed that it was lying at the

root of a certain tree, where she found it next day, and her theory is

As a rule dreams throw everything into a dramatic form. Some one

knocks at our door, and the dream bases a little drama on the noise;

it constructs an explanatory myth, a myth to account for the noise,

which is acted out in the theatre of the brain.



To take an instance, a disappointing one:--
