The author witnesses dream analysis in her clinical work as the via regia to the unconscious, i.e., to that unknown Other within ourselves that makes us do what we consciously do not wish to do. Fragments of dream analysis illustrate the following aspects: the transference dream marking the transition between preliminary sessions and analysis; the dream as neurosis in a nutshell; the popping up of the Other in the dream; the working through of a taboo and the subsequent subjective change; the working through of death wishes; the question of the dream as foretelling the future; the end of the analytic cure; the timelessness of the unconscious.
