According to Freud, dreams provide a closer look at the unconscious because people's defenses tend to be lowered when they are asleep. But even in dreaming there is a censoring of thoughts; events and people in dreams are usually represented by symbols. Because of this, one must move beyond the surface description of the dream and consider its underlying meaning the latent content, which reveals the true message of the dream.
