Which, who appears to materialize out of nothing. Who and the unseen voice of Mrs. L'Engle initially had tremendous difficulty publishing this novel because publishers could not identify a market for it among either children or adults. As a result, Meg then finds that she is braver than what she had thought she could ever be.
The story itself is made up of vague scenarios of conflict of the psyche and spirit, with the entire Universe at stake.
Ws reveal to the children that the universe is under attack from an evil being who appears as a large dark cloud called The Black Thing, which is essentially the personification of evil. There, L'Engle spent her time helping her husband in their general store, raising three children, and writing her first novels.
Her family knows that she is emotionally immature but also sees her capable of doing great things. Then at Christmas, L'Engle threw a tea party for her mother.
I love that L'Engle doesn't underestimate them in this way, at least initially, on the surface.
They soon meet up with the three "witches" again, and Meg is sent back to Camazotz to try to save her brother, Charles Wallace, from the spell that has imprisoned him. Dickoften wear dark washes of black and navy blue with 3-D fonts and brutal images of fire and destruction.
I love that individuality prevails, and the romantic in me approves of the loving, whole family.
