Phantastes: A Faerie Romance
I finished reading this book a couple of months ago and wanted others to read it. Since I doubt I can be overly convincing, I am going to share a few quotes instead.
But it is no use trying to account for things in Fairy Land; and one who travels there soon learns to forget the vary idea of doing so, and takes everything as it comes; like a child, who, being in a chronic condition of wonder, is surprised at nothing.
All that man sees has to do with man. Worlds cannot be without an intermundane relationship. The community of the centre of all creation suggest an interradiating connection and dependence of the parts.
There are several great stories in this book that reads like a travel memoir. One is a story of a people that will actually die of desire. I hope I have interested you. I have a few more quotes I will share in the future.
I enjoy the new Fox show Fringe. I wonder. Would Walter Bishop be considered a good guy? I know he is on the "right" side and helping the good people. But he seems to be driven by curiosity above all else. Is that a humanistic moral good? He has sacrificed himself to help others but the motivation always seems to be more about answering questions rather than helping people. Also, why is Agent Dunham always going to intercept the bad guy by herself? How does that happen?
