Annotation

Explores the evolution of human imagination through the narrative, interpreting the varying functions of landscape, character, and imagery as indicative of a moral journey. Argues for the significance of natural elements, such as the horns of the kudu, to reflect individual growth and life’s forward progression, explaining that what arises from man’s propulsive participation in creation is a new mode of thought and narration.
