My thoughts on The Crossing (Part III)

Ok I know it’s in part two, and so very blatant but I find it to be my favorite of passages of the novel:

pg 146

“Such a man is a dreamer who wakes from a dream of to a greater sorrow yet. … The smallest mark upon the page exaggerates his presence. 

 This passage says so many things, and can even be directed to Billy.


Misc. tie ups to my other thoughts:                                                                                             As far as the horse being a spirit guide, you will notice throughout the entire novel, right to the end, there are some places that the horse cannot or will not go. Much like in a spirit quest, the guide guides, it does not take the journey with you.  Once certain things were completed, Billy would find his guide and get back on to his trek. 

…and just so you can sort of know where I am coming from the wolf, it is believed that after humans were created they became lost, so our creators sent wolves in human form to guide us. Wolves are in fact beyond knowledge, and language, and the world of man, and this novel echos that sentiment in great detail.
