As an adult pairing to my favorite childhood book “The Little Princess,” by Frances Hodgson Burnett, this book similarly relishes its own reveries as rich ends unto themselves while also examining the important inversions of the poetic image as sustenance.

That’s a pretty thorny statement to try to try clarify, so let me try to stay with the text: Every nook and cranny, every secret, mystical corner, each minute detail of your home and of the enthralled childhood you once enjoyed would flood your heart with a forgotten, Elysial joy Want to Read saving….

Topoanalysis has become a seminal aspect of my reading as well as my writing. But we do know that it comes from beyond a wind that dies down or a rain that grows gentle.


He brings the image to the very limit of what he is able to imagine. The book is about space and the philosophy of it.

I used to retain a vivid and unmistakable memory of lying in bed as an infant in a dark, warm room and hearing the two ominous and mysterious-sounding double booms – first low-pitched, then even lower – of a nearby fog horn. Indeed, immensity is the movement of the motionless bchelard. Showing of 2 reviews.

Please try again later. He doesn’t care if you get the jargon of phenomenology; he just wants you to feel at home. I know this is a classic, but it read like a drunk man monopolizing conversation at dinner. It’s very very French, full of “we” and assumptions, and I find myself protesting at bachflard this business about cellars and attics and how hurricanes make homes more comforting–I’m a Dl, and we don’t have cellars or attics, though we do have hurricanes, real ones, which often do not make homes more comfortable.
