Green Kingdom

Duct of a vivid imagination and keen powers of observation The Green Kingdom itself is a metaphor for whatever circumstances can make a person feel some control over fate To live in the Green Kingdom is to inhabit what Maddux calls the climate of potentiality and to read The Green Kingdom is an intense experience in which we imagine our own responses to this land that Maddux so carefully delineates Interesting how different I felt about this book when I read it back in high school as opposed to the recent read I thought it was amazing the first time and had thought about it over the years so I found it through inter library loan And I was disappointed the second time it just didn t catch my attention and seemed almost boring Maybe some books just shouldn t be re read
