"You will find on the tables before you copies of The Dream Oracle, by Inigo Imago. Dream interpretation is a most important means of divining the future and one that may very probably be tested in your OWL."
Professor Trelawney[src]

The Dream Oracle is a leather-bound book written by Inigo Imago on the subject of dream interpretation[1].

It was required for Professor Trelawney's fifth year divination classes.[1] Professor Trelawney had already set them out on the tables in the Divination Classroom rather than having her students buy them,[1] something unusual at Hogwarts.[2]

The introduction took twenty minutes to read,[3] and was known to provide some information on dream interpretation.[1]


Notes and references

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 1.7 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (Chapter Twelve - Professor Umbridge)
  2. The only other times students didn't need to buy their textbooks were when they already owned them (as with The Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection in Moody's class) or (in the film adaptation only) Dark Arts Defence: Basics for Beginners given out by Professor Umbridge.
  3. As a double lesson is an hour, a single hour must therefore be half an hour. Ten minutes left for dream interpretation subtracted from half an hour total class time equals twenty minutes of reading time.
