I've been lost in the back alleys of Venice around midnight, and I have to tell you I was starting to see little hunched figures in red coats out of the corner of my eye. These possibilities often justified through stretched truths (concentration, discipline etc.) help to create an atmosphere of verisimilitude. In our schools, this means little more than teaching the kids a few bongo rhythms, how to tie a sari and so forth. None of the book is "real" -- it's just this imaginative adventure followed by that imaginative adventure.

This style became palatable to bourgeois tastes, and the last vestiges of Expressionism were shed.

The overthrow of the nonconformist protagonist at the close, like the killing of Kate in After the First Death, violates the anticipated outcome of the action; within the myth, the validation of nonconformity is victory. This scene requires a reassessment on the part of the reader, who hitherto may have assumed that Mary Call’s view of reality constituted the reality of the book; it prepares those readers for an ending that is not the one most desired by Mary Call.

I learned to read using the old phonics method. Magical cooking is a popular concept for magical realism and "straight" fantasy both within and without Latin America.

Commentary: I slowly, but steadily, indulged in this magical tale throughout the month. Kanon, another Key anime, is very similar: it's just a normal high school anime, except for the fox that turns into a human girl, the girl with healing powers who fights invisible monsters with a sword, and (yet another) girl in a coma projecting herself and magically producing a happy ending.
