A Dream Within A Dream

Written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons

Narration by Orson Welles

For my own part, I have never had a thought which I could not set down in words with even more distinctness than that which I'd conceived it. There is however a class of fancies, of exquisite delicacy, which are not thoughts and to which as yet I have found it absolutely impossible to adapt to language. These fancies arise in the soul, alas so rarely. Only at epics of most intense tranquillity, when the bodily and mental health are in perfection, and at those mere points of time where the confines of the waking world blend with the world of dreams. And so I captured this fancy, where all that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.
