What famous work of literature stemmed from a dream the author had?

  • A Christmas Carol
  • The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde correct

    We know, you are are wondering where the "Twilight" option is because everyone knows the American tale of a sparkly vampire who appeared in a middle-aged Mom's dream and made her millions of dollars. The truth is, dreams are pretty cool. A lot of stories have stemmed from them including, some say, Mary Shelley's famous "Frankenstein" and poetry from Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The only problem with dreaming your stories is that 90% of your dreams are forgotten 10 minutes after you wake up so unless you are crazy diligent, you probably didn't remember the novel you wrote in your sleep.
