Winter depresses Dexter. It gives him a sense of "profound melancholy" that drowns him in the discontentment of his life. Winter makes Dexter long for the magical illusion of the rich. Dexter's winter dreams take hold of him until there is little else in his life: they guide Dexter. Unfortunately his winter dreams are largely an illusion. Wealth and status are never within Dexter's reach.
