The Tale of the Mirror (& The Wishing Tree Poetry)

ByErjan J. Slavin

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
"The Tale of the Mirror" is an allegory of the human predicament of having to be in the world while also having to remain true to our own ideals and dreams. Told in a voice for all ages, this story delights us with its sense of comedy, and touches on some themes that we have all been familiar with. How is it that we can be ourselves, and still enjoy our freedom in the civil world as we grow in it? This work approaches this sensitive moment in a young person's development with both amusement and wit. The rhythm of imagination is also part of the rhythm of the world, and the world is also part of the rhythm of the imagination. As simple as it is deep in idea, this poetic novel will give you a glimpse of yourself that you will want to come back to again. Included also in this hardcover volume are the celebrated "Wishing Tree" poems, and a scholarly commentary by the author.
