This essay deals with the literary method of Natsume Soseki's "Ten Nights of Dream". It seems to me that Soseki's method in this work is directly related to that of E.A.Poe's technique of literary 'perversity'. Soseki's diaries and memoranda also provide clues concerning dreams and the imagination as well as scientific or philosophical conceptions, which also relate to the literary method I analyse.
