ABSTRACT
The aspect of dream in life was handled as a key factor by some writers. The social and gender factors also influence the dreamers to a greater level thereby affecting or effecting their life and health. It doesn’t mean that all the people who underwent a particular incident will definitely get a similar dream. Fear of anything was purely subjective since it affects some and it has no value on some. I like to present ‘The last leaf’ by O’ Henry with the theories that were stated by some of the renowned psychologists from Freud to Adler and others along with the different kinds of dreams. The character Johnsy was the one to get disturbed a lot by her dream thereby getting her life and health affected and later recovering her health because of her psychic feminism.
