Dear Lawrence, you may want to consider sigismundo on not being in the tower 
and not being freed from captivity, but also the Trauerspiel by HvH

            This dream of reality eludes
            If we are fair. We measure
            Ourselves against each other's
            Awareness then rear up
            And howl that we know
            All that there is and will
            Be; yet when we are old

            With hubris hidden away
            Like something forgotten
            In the pocket of a coat
            We feel a knobby nudge,
            The catch in the throat,
            The blinking of our eyes
            At the passing image that

            Is nothing at all.  What then
            At such a day's end?  Shall we
            Hunker down, watch and wait?
            If so, what of the man who raised himself
            So long ago and sought to know it all?
            He is down the hall at his desk tinkering
            With a few words before his morning nap.
