Reflections – Books and Reading

Literature creates a magical space, in which things otherwise incompatible become compatible and the otherwise impossible becomes real. And this imaginary or surreal space has its own counterpart in magical time, the time of poetry, myth, and fairy tale, which contradicts all historical, calendar time and is common to the legends and fairy tales of all peoples…Rare as authentic magic may have become it is still alive in art.

Reflections, Hesse/Michels
