Need for Sleep: Daybeams - Moondreams - New Schemes

This book explores the influence of fairytale details and imagery on adult cognition. It presents an exploration of possible changes in an individual’s schematic representations that reflect certain artistic re-interpretations of the Sleeping Beauty fairytale, including works of performance art, fiction, and film. Integral to this cognitive change is what the author describes as being In-A-Boudoir state of mind, in which daydreams and fantasies may soothe an individual enough to facilitate new understandings of beauty, love, and fate.

This book will be of interest to scholars and other researchers concerned with how cognition (including psychology and the brain, psychology and literature, psychology and art, philosophy of the mind, and metaphor) might relate specifically to understanding the subjective experience of daydreaming.
