Dream-“I am a Corpse” Master Effendi narrates, "When in the course of this agony I knew I would die, an incredible feeling of relief filled me. I felt this relief during the moment of departure; my arrival to this side was soothing, like the dream of seeing oneself asleep." Here, the rhetorical dream transpires as Master Effendi's life is dwindling. Using the dream depicts the similarity between conventional sleeping and death.
