Originally published in 1924, “Dreams” is a collection of short stories written by South African writer Olive Schreiner. Her second book, “Dreams” contains eleven short stories inspired by Schreiner's dreams and her experiences living on a South African farm. Olive Schreiner (1855–1920) was a South African anti-war campaigner, intellectual, and author most famous for her highly-acclaimed novel “The Story of an African Farm” (1883), which deals with such issues as existential independence, agnosticism, individualism, and the empowerment of women. Other notable works by this author include: “Closer Union: a Letter on South African Union and the Principles of Government” (1909), and “Woman and Labour” (1911). Read & Co.
