One technique in psychoanalytic literary criticism is to treat a work of literature as though it is a dream.

The goal of this technique is to understand the unconscious symbols and desires through interpretation of the more obvious content. In the process of explaining literature psychoanalysis has been used and in the process literature has been used as a source for psychoanalytic conceptions.
