The Garden of Forking Paths

16 01 2008

This is the first time I have ever heard of or seen the book “The Garden of Forking Paths.” The concept it describes and elaborates on it very interesting though. I really enjoyed the idea of looking at a book as a labyrinth.  Also how everyone thought the labyrinth was a “code key” to the indecipherable novel that was written, when in fact they are one in the same. Although there are not many novels where every type of situation occurs, it is interesting to think about this in the way that different people’s perspectives on situations and ideas are this. In another one of my classes we are talking about rhetoric and all of the various definitions of it. This is similar because the way something is perceived, characterized or talked about can be a situation similar to what the labyrinth was trying to show.
