My poster for my talk

This talk focuses on the character Dream of the Endless, as configured by Neil Gaiman for the award winning graphic novel series Sandman. Tracing the character’s origins from previous comic incarnations of the Sandman the talk will focus on how aspects of the classical Greek god Hypnos (Sleep) and his sons the Oneiroi (Morpheus, Phobetor and Pantasos) underpin the portrayal and how Gaiman’s classical references (including Virgil and Ovid) assist to fix Dream within a complex new but timeless mythological world.
