Abstract

Diary records by German expressionist poet Georg Heym (1887–1912) where he describes his dreams and night fantasies demonstrate his deep interest in borderline psychic conditions and give us a unique opportunity to get inside poet’s creative workshop. In My Dreams Georg Heym records various manifestations of his imagination: his passion for antiquity and revolutionary France history, macabre scenes of violence, and disturbances of his personal life. The Russian translation is done by Konstantin Matrosov. Introduction by Anton Chorny is an attempt to track the history of the manuscript and its traces in memoirs and scholarly papers. Commentaries give brief information on personal names and circumstances mentioned by the author.
