Books Info:

Night Thoughts free pdf The award-winning poet offers us a remarkable memoir about her coming to terms with a life in crisis through the study of dreams.
As a young woman, threatened by disturbing visions, Sarah Arvio went into psychoanalysis to save herself. The result is a riveting sequence of dream poems, followed by "Notes." The poems, in the form of irregular sonnets, describe her dream world: a realm of beauty and terror emblazoned with recurring colors and images--gold, blood red, robin's-egg blue, snakes, and swarms of razors, suitcases, playing cards, a catwalk. The "Notes"--also exquisitely readable--narrate the unfolding meaning of the dreams and the recovery of buried girlhood memories, starting with the diaries she burned to make herself forget.
An utterly original work of art and a fascinating portrayal of the power of dream interpretation to resolve psychic distress, this stunning book illumines the poetic logic of the dreaming mind- it also shows us, with surpassing poignancy, how tender and fragile is the mind of an adolescent girl.
