The purpose of this paper is to highlight how the dreaminess occurs in the poetry of Petre Stoica, Charles Baudelaire and Paul Verlaine. The method of diacronics followed by the symbolic one, have been used in the scientific stage of the work. Through an analytical approach there have been comments made on the lyrical vision, which expresses a passion for dreaming. Thus we have observed the favorable context for dreaming, that is the night. Night is the time dimension that opens an imaginary universe like a Russian doll, and poetry itself becomes a dream you do not want to ever wake up from. No wonder the poet is associated with the myth of Scheherazade, who has to tell a story every night in order to survive. The theme of death is present in the poem as it is said that during sleep the soul leaves the body and travels (this is a Romantic specific motif), from which emerged the idea that, because of its journey, the soul which returned to its body that was let to sleep, might not recognize the body and the man is fated to die. The motif of the mirror is also one that expresses duplication and also the gateway to a mysterious beyond. Thus, the dream imagery of the three poets mentioned previously is recognized by a variety of images whose isomorphisms reflect overflowing exultation. One of them is the product of an agreement by which the poetic spirit forgets its own finitude, living the bliss of integration into an indeterminate reality, which is present in the isomorphic images of light, a dreaming that integrates it.
