Seen as both god and devil,Hypnos(The God of sleep)was worshiped by ancient Greeks through a mist of mystery. In man' s life, sleep accompanies us from the early moments of our existence as embryo.He is there in our very initial presence in life. Though he stands so close to us, our later life(as Murdoch puts it)becomes “a struggle against sleep… Sleep is a morsel of death borrowed to keep up and renew that part of life which has been exhausted by the day.” Sleeps dominant power surpasses cultures and raises and demands of mankind only to surrender to his will.If we stand lucky, Morpheus (Hypnos son) will grand us with what will always be the most elusive gifts of his kingdom… Dreams.
