What setting (time or place) from a book or story would you most like to visit? Eudora Welty said that, “Being shown how to locate, to place, any account is what does most toward making us believe it…,” so in what location would you most like to hang out?
One of the reasons I read certain books over and over is because the world the author has created is so compelling that I want to spend more time living in it, even if the novelty has worn off, even if I’ve visited it hundreds of times before.
For this prompt, I have two answers: Prince Edward Island, due to the Anne of Green Gables series, and Hogwarts, from the Harry Potter series. When I was younger, I wanted to be one of the children running up the path towards Avonlea school, and now, I’d love to be the teacher in that school (if I could have my own family as well), or live next door to Anne and Gilbert and all their lovely children. If I couldn’t have that, I’d love to be a literature teacher at Hogwarts (again, with my own family), teaching the semiotics of The Tales of Beedle the Bard.
This is my literary blog hop post.
