Notes to Dream-Children; A Revery

By Charles Lamb  (1775–1834)
 
AUTHOR NOTE
LAMB is the heir of the eighteenth-century essayists, but with a richer imagination and a more delicate sensibility. He is an essayist rather than a story-teller,—an essayist of an intense individuality. But he could dream dreams as the other poets have done; and here is one of them, contained in the “Essays of Elia,” published in 1822.
  
STORY NOTE
This is hardly a story at all; it is so slight in substance and in texture; it is a revery only. Yet it has its movement and its climax; it makes only a single impression; and thus it is seen to have certain of the essential qualities of the true short-story.
