“Dreams” By Edgar Allan Poe

“Dreams” by Edgar Allan Poe is about a sad person who would rather live forever in his dreams. Even though he dreams of “hopeless sorrows”, he says his dreams are better than his sorry life. In my video, I interpreted it more positively than the original poem. The person in the poem was a sad man and I’m happy, so I looked for the more positive aspects of the poem.
