LIFE IS A DREAM edited by Deborah Parker

“Are all glories like dreams-the true ones taken to be false, and the false ones, to be true? There’s so little difference between one and the other that we cannot be sure if what we’re seeing and enjoying is simple fact or an illusion! Can it be the copy is so like the original that no one knows which is which?”
