A Dream Within A Dream

By Edgar Allan Poe

Take this kiss upon the brow!

And, in Parting from you now,

Thus much let me avow --

You are not wrong, who deem

5 That my days have been a dream;

Yet if hope has flown away

In a night, or in a day,

In a vision, or in none,

Is it therefore the less gone.

10 All that we see or seem

Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar

Of a surf-tormented shore,

And I hold within my hand

15Grains of the golden Sand --

How few! yet how they creep

Through my fingers to the deep,

While I weep — while I weep!

O God! Can I not grasp

Poe uses connotation with the idea of dreams. He uses the word "dream" several times and means a dream, but it calls an emotional response from the reader as he compares a dream to life. Comparing dreams to life gives life a vague appearance. People do not like to think of their lives as uncontrollable but like to try to controll their own lives. The comparison suggests that life is more vague in lines 10-11, " All that we see or seem' is but a dream within a dream," and lines 23-24,"Is all that we see or seem, but a dream within a dream?" Since this poem uses "sand" as a symbol for moments in life and the persona does not mean to actually grasp them physically in his hand, it does not have much denotation. Line 1,"Take this kiss upon the brow," may be the most denotive line. It gives an image of the Man placing a kiss upon someone he loves.
