Although dreams, in psychoanalytic discourse, have been conceptualized as a window into the unconscious, Wang’s poetry emphasizes the social dimension of dreams, particularly the use of dreams to index historical trauma and social pro- cesses. In bursts of vibrant, often comic lyrics, Wang illuminates the sunflower’s many dream guises and its evolving symbolism in literature and society, using the Fibonacci sequence (a pattern found in the seed spirals of sunflower).
