These stories all started with dreams and the impulses they brought, inspired by natural beauty, emotions, and the wandering of the subconscious mind. The Universal Draught, by author Elena Lebedeva-Fradkoff in collaboration with Helen Hagon, shares narratives of inventive psychological fiction ranging from the grotesque to the sensuous. Here, reality meets the dream world in a mysterious haze of uncertainty, introducing endangered wasps, the voices of the unborn, wolves of the snow, the surgical removal of souls, and much more. Drawn from both dreams and real encounters in the waking world, these tales depict impossibly real characters and places. They also transcend cultural boundaries, offering an exploration of characters and realities projecting from an otherworldly existence into our own realm. Featuring original illustrations, this dream-based short story collection presents experimentations with the real and surreal through the creation of profound fantasy and new literary worlds.

Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is viewed as the classic allegory of man's duality--the good and evil embodied in every person. But could Jekyll's "transforming draught" have been alcohol? In the Victorian era, alcohol was the topic of national debate for decades and people endlessly deliberated its proper place in society. Shadowed all his life by the cloud of alcoholism, Stevenson well knew the good and evil of strong drink. This book investigates Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as an allegory of alcoholism--an interpretation that cultural change and the story's renown have perhaps obscured. The author examines patterns of language, plot, characterization and imagery to reveal how mind-altering drink figures as the story's subtext. Early chapters establish the story's literal references to strong drink and its metaphors regarding alcohol. The focus then shifts to drinking in Stevenson's life, the sociology of drink in Victorian Britain, and the portrayal of alcohol in literature, including Stevenson's other works. Possible real-life models for the Jekyll-Hyde character are explored. Subsequent chapters examine the history of Britain's temperance movement, scenes that arose from Stevenson's dreams, how the temperance movement and industrial development may have influenced the story, and the story's interpretation in Stevenson's time. An appendix further investigates the elements of Stevenson's language.
