Poetic Ideal Versus 'the Hard Real' in Charles Harpur's 'The Tower of the Dream', Michael Ackland , single work criticism
Ackland explores Harpur's use of the "dream tradition" to show how the poem expresses the "wonder of dream and the anxiety of nightmare". The dreams exist as part of the content of prophetic vision by identifying the existence of a supernatural dimension of creation accessible to man. Inspired revelation and individual impulse converge on the dream to represent the poetic act which Harpur sees as "the blending of mortal and immortal minds, of actual and ideal worlds".
