Dream Land Summary

The main character in Dream Land is a young woman, and the poem describes her unhappy life. Instead of rejoicing in the joys of life and nature like the "rosy morn," and the "fields of corn," she hears only the sad song of the nightingale and the shadowy twilight. The woman feels no joy at being alive and longs for death, where she will be at peace and finally happy.

Dream Land Analysis

Dream Land explores the theme of death, which is mentioned often in Rossetti's poetry. Her characters are unable to enjoy life and seek solace in the peace of death. We can interpret this as women at the time being unable to choose how to live their lives. Their only escape from this is in death.
