This chapter is an invitation to rethink the relationship between dreams and the political. I propose, drawing on the political theory of Hannah Arendt and the work on dreams of flight by Gaston Bachelard, that if we exclude the dreams of political subject from our understanding of that subject, we risk making the political subject poorer and more vulnerable. In demonstrating this, I engage with my grandmother’s repetitive dream of flying back to the village that she was expelled from during the 1974 invasion of Cyprus by Turkey.
