Thread Name: John of Dreams - who IS John?
Subject: RE: John of Dreams - who IS John?
Okay, being fond of peeking into books, whatever the occasion, I did take a look at those two links -- thanks!

The first was an anthology of poems by a woman written in 1915, and the second was a novel told from the point of view of a young boy (at least, based on the first paragraph of the opening chapter), published in 1878; and although the book's title comes from that line in Hamlet, most of the chapter titles (and the book's epigraph) come from As You Like It.

So the mystery lingers...

the popular blocks getting to the interesting.

Heh! If only "John" weren't such a common English name! And if only "Dreams" weren't so inherently interesting to human beings!
