Midnight Dreary Festival: "A Dream Within a Dream" by Emma Caterincchio
This #MidnightDrearyRLT Community Creation submission is an original composition by Emma Caterincchio, inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's "A Dream Within a Dream." In Emma's own words: "I chose to compose an original work based off the poem A Dream Within A Dream. What spoke to me about this poem is how dreams can feel so right to us and so real, although things feel slightly off. When we take that dream reality into our day to day life we can lose a track of things like time, and what's real, it can be beautiful and confusing and disorienting and a sanctuary all at once. We know there are layers and yet we cannot discern one from another, we simply feel they are there."
