Fiddler's Green


Jump to: navigation, search

We are introduced to Fiddler's Green as "Gilbert" in The Sandman: The Doll's House. Another resident of The Dreaming who went AWOL during Dream's imprisonment at the hands of Roderick Burgess, Fiddler's Green wanted to experience existence as a person instead of a place. During his time on Earth, he provides significant assistance to Rose Walker. He offers up his existence in Rose's stead when it becomes apparent that, as she is a Dream Vortex, Dream must kill her. Dream declines the offer, and Fiddler's Green becomes a place, "the Heart of The Dreaming" again. Gracious to the last, Fiddler's Green asks Rose, if she decides to stay in The Dreaming after her death, to visit him: "Walk in my meadows and green glades. Rest beneath my trees."

There was also a convention by this name.
