This paper reviews the book, "Woman Warrior," written by Maxine Hong Kingston. The paper examines how Kingston uses dream and fantasy to tell her story. The paper explains that, for Kingston, dreams and fantasies are equally as important as real-life narratives, which only provide a sliver of the truth and a partial rendering of a person's experiences. The paper contends that all people spend a considerable number of hours dreaming, and Kingston's approach to memoirs honors and respects this essential aspect of human existence. The paper explains that dreams mirror and reflect our psychic impressions of daily life, and they offer insight into our egos, alter-egos, hopes, and fears.
