Talk:A Dream Within a Dream
|WikiProject Poetry||(Rated Start-class, Low-importance)|
The capitalization of the title has been often "corrected" in the past few months and I figure a discussion is in order. Poe's original publication was titled "A Dream within a Dream"; modern anthologies seem to consistently go with "A Dream Within a Dream". I have yet to see a published anthology "A Dream Within A Dream". My vote is to always leave that second "a" in lower-case, unless someone has a logical reason not to, though I think "Within" is just fine in upper-case. --Midnightdreary (talk) 02:43, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
- Poe has it right. within is a preposition, not typically capitalized in a title. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 16:04, 22 March 2012 (UTC)
Reference to "Golden Sand"
I'm not sure that the California Gold Rush has anything to do with this metaphor. Does it fit with the poem's theme? Is this bit of information relevant to interpreting the poem or is it misleading?
Am i mistaken or is the Film "Inception" one long adaption of the poem? Just think about the scenes where you can see main characters wash up on the beach, letting golden sand rinse throuch their fingers...
