Dreams.  Our dreams, if for once in a way they succeed and are complete — generally a dream is a bungled piece of work — are symbolic concatenations of scenes and images in place of a narrative poetical language.  They paraphrase our experiences or expectations or relations with poetic boldness and definiteness, so that in the morning we are always astonished at ourselves when we remember the nature of our dream.  In dreams we use up too much artistry — and hence are often too poor in artistry in the daytime.
