Interpretation of Dreams (1900) - Sigmund Freud
[FR] [DE] [UK]

"In the following pages, I shall demonstrate that there is a psychological technique which makes it possible to interpret dreams, and that on the application of this technique, every dream will reveal itself as a psychological structure, full of significance, and one which may be assigned to a specific place in the psychic activities of the waking state. Further, I shall endeavour to elucidate the processes which underlie the strangeness and obscurity of dreams, and to deduce from these processes the nature of the psychic forces whose conflict or co-operation is responsible for our dreams." --Sigmund Freud, from the introduction

La Ronde (1900) - Arthur Schnitzler
[FR] [DE] [UK]

Reigen (1900), usually called La Ronde, is a play by Arthur Schnitzler still frequently presented, and made into a film by Max Ophüls (1950) and Roger Vadim (1964). It was first published for friends in 1900 but not performed until 1921, when it was immediately shut down and deemed an obscene work. It presents a series of tableaux of interconnected characters in different sexual situations. The play scrutinizes the sexual mores and class ideology of its day and may be described as a bedroom farce. --[1]
