The Dream of Poliphilo (The Bollingen Series No. 25) Hardcover – January 1, by Linda Fierz-David (Author)/5(4).

Finally at dawn Poliphilo falls asleep, and begins to dream his both idyllic and phantasmagoric dream. In .   In these scenes, Poliphilo wanders a bucolic -classical dreamland in search of his love, Polia “many things”.
