Titanic Image

Dreamed 1912/4/14? by Graham Greene, age 7

On the night of the Titanic disaster, he dreamt of a shipwreck:

"One image of the dream has remained with me for more than sixty years: a man in oilskins bent double beside a companion-way under the blow of a great wave."

SOURCE: Greene's autobiography A sort of Life, p.24, quoted in The Life of Graham Greene by Norman Sherry, v.1, p. 106.

Curiously, after quoting three such apparent telepathic nightmares, Sherry simply drops the subject! Yet if Greene's unconscious did sense others' terror this effectively, this explains much about Greene's life--from his notoriously painful childhood (he attempted suicide to escape boarding school) to his adult reclusiveness.
