The title comes from the famous soliloquy in William Shakespeare
's "Macbeth" (Act II, Scene I, lines 33-39): "Is this a dagger which I see before me, / The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee: / I have thee not, and yet I see thee still! / Art thou not, fatal vision, sensible / To feeling as to sight? Or art thou but / A dagger of the mind, a false creation, / Proceeding from the heat-oppressed brain?" See more
