The Land of Forgotten Beasts

Book by Barbara Werbsa, illustrated by Margot Tomes, 1964. A lovely story in which a boy who believes only in science comes to a land of mythical beasts who are fading away due to people’s lack of belief in them.

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Healthy imagination should be encouraged in children’s literature for survival and progress in our world. My childhood took place before television, so, with books and radio, such imagination could flourish.

      Indeed! In fact, TV, movies, and video games have drained children of much of their imagination and resourcefulness in being able to entertain themselves.
