For the Romantics Dreams played a very special role in our lives. It was an indication of our imaginative capacities to reach into other realms. In this poem we experience a dream that Blake had about an ant that becomes isolated from its community. 

We learn more about Blakes view of imagination, the self, innocence and the loss of innocence in "A Dream."
