"At the heart of the Sultan s vast but fragile empire stands the mysterious Palace of Dreams- the most secret and powerful Ministry ever invented. Its task is to scour every town, village and hamlet to collect the citizens dreams, then to sift, sort and classify them, and ultimately to interpret them, in order to identify the master-dreams that will provide the clues to the Empire s destinies and those of its Monarch. An entire nation s consciousness is thus tapped into and meticulously laid bare in the form of images and symbols of the dreaming mind. Kadare s Palace of Dreams stands as the symbol of the thought-police who have, through history, been the most effective instruments of oppression at the service of dictators."
