Humpty Dumpty – Humpty Dumpty is an egg character in a children’s nursery rhyme:
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king’s horses and all the king’s men
Couldn’t put Humpty together again.
To dream of Humpty Dumpty almost always references this nursery rhyme, though it may also be a reference to the character in Alice in Wonderland, who claimed to be able to make words mean what he wanted them to. This is a symbol of childhood, and may be a symbol of confusion, especially about language. It may also indicate a feeling of futility about fixing a specific problem, since “all the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again.”
