Recurring themes: omnipresent eyes, tiny alabaster hands, women embedded in ice or walls.

Second, Poetry. Unsurprisingly, it is also

I’ve never really contemplated the thought that another’s dreams could pervade my own. Literature is overloaded with dream references, thinly veiled references to an unconscious mind, or a sub-plot or even prophecy. However, Jindřich Štyrský’s ‘Dreamverse’, a collection of poems, prose, sketches, collages and paintings does not use the “dream” as a literary device, it is the core subject matter.
