DREAM-THEORY IN THE DREAM OF THE ROOD AND THE WANDERER By ANDREW GALLOWAY DETERMINING the theory of dreams behind and within Old English poetry is usually bracketed as a sterile pursuit, highly speculative in its hypotheses and pale in its literary significance.

The Dream of the Rood. The Dream of the Rood, Old English lyric, the earliest dream poem and one of the finest religious poems in the English language, once, but no longer, attributed to Caedmon or Cynewulf. In a dream the unknown poet beholds a beautiful tree—the rood, or cross, on which Christ died.

The Narrator of 'The Dream of the Rood' “ must follow the Cross in living the life of an exile, longing for the native land.” One final example.

Both “The Wanderer” and “Dream of the Rood” contain references to an old and decaying earth, and the religious overtones all point toward eternity, not life in the present. The speaker of Rood, after he hears the Rood’s tale, writes of his loneliness in this life.
