“The incidents of this well-known poem are graphically pictured, showing how a man passed through all the suffereings of a murderer in his dream -- The innocence of the victim -- The manner in which the foul deed was performed -- How he tried to hide his deed -- The accusations of conscience -- How the man could not be hidden -- The phantom haunting him everywhere -- And the final awakening with the capture and imprisonment.”
