“A Dream Within a Dream” by Edgar Allan Poe Review

The poem expresses doubt and uncertainty about the nature of reality, questioning whether life itself is just an illusion. The whole poem is asking the question of “Is all that we see or seem but a dream within a dream?”

This poem is for the most past a philosophical poem which brings us multiple questions about the reality and what separates the reality from dreams and imagination.

This poem is very short and very simple. It’s easy to follow up with. The ending itself is really hitting you. This poem really makes you wish that more poems could have been like this. Because it is so good. It is deep, well written and up to you on how deep the meaning is for you.

This poem really makes you think about your life and makes you question your definition of reality.

This poem is so well written that it short of makes you imagine Edgar Allan Poe being somewhere and thinking about these questions which he gives us in this poem and later making these thoughts to a beautiful poem.

This poem needs to get extra points for showing the reader how reality can be a tricky thing. The poem shows how the reality may escapes us when we don’t pay close attention to it.

The whole poem as you may think already is about sadness and loss which we all experience at some point in our lives.

This poem illustrates that human life is actually slipping away, dribbling like water or sand for that part and implies that our existence is just an abstraction of the mind.

This poem really stands out like something written by a gothic author who lived a some time ago. 

I give this poem 4 / 5
