How does the poem: "A dream within a dream" by: Edgar Allen Poe, correspond to the Pre-Civil war/American Culture?

First of all you need to think of and list all the "Pre-Civil War/American Culture" elements you can. Then see what parallels you can draw to the content and spirit of Poe's poem.

Poe was a an alcoholic, usually in a state of depression. That poem in particular reflects his depression and view of his place in life. It seems to me that culture is hardly a thread. It is about life is slipping away, he has only a few golden grains in his life, and even those slip from his grasp.
I think I would be lost also trying to fit this poem into a cultural setting.

Have you examined all that you've learned about pre-Civil War culture? It was certainly very complex with many different cultures.
