Brian Lau English 200 D Andrew McNair 4-02-88 Reading Response #2 After reading the poems “The Pains of Sleep” and “Dreams and Sleep” I have concluded that Samuel Taylor Coleridge is a man who fears nightmares. Everybody fears nightmares, but to Samuel Taylor Coleridge, he seems to have some pretty intense nightmares. He has nightmares that cause him to wake up screaming and afterwards, crying. With similar experiences, I can recall that when I was around five to ten years old, I used to have some strange nightmares that would wake me up in the middle of the night gasping for breath. It was strange because after these nightmares, I would just sit on my bed and maybe my eyes were open or not, but all I could think about was finding out why I had dreamed what I had dreamed. It had occupied every bit of consciousness. Then about a year ago, I had a similar experience, except I was not sleeping. I was driving home from a loss at a basketball game and I was pretty mad that my team had lost. I was so mad that in my head, I was playing flashbacks in my head. The flashbacks were so lively

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
