Fables and Fantasies (Classic Reprint)

by Janet Frame

Hardback Publication Date: 10/09/2018

Excerpt from Snowman Snowman: Fables and Fantasies People live on earth, and animals and birds; and fish live in the sea, but we do not defeat the sea, for we are driven back to the sky, or we stay, and become what we have tried to conquer, remembering nothing except our new flowing in and out, in and out, sighing for one place, drawn to another, wild with promises to white birds and bright red fish and beaches abandoned then longed for.

I never conquered the sea. I flew at midnight to the earth, and in the morning I was made into a human shape of snow.
