Dahl's gem shines on
on March 1, 2002
When encountering dahl's metaphysical view of man and nature it's best to approach his works from a geo-sensitive literary mindset. This I say, of course, with all neo-pretentions aside.
His characters have an opaque luster and that sheen only grows as the character reveals himself through dahl's social-societal inclinations to reveal that which has thus far remained cloaked.
And the book is cloaked, in a sense. Cloaked with an aged, starched blanket enriching words and breathing life into paradigms once left unexplored save for the recesses of a sharp yet dusty mind. But this you see, of course, and don't you?
