Chapter 23

Postby Freakzilla » 12 Feb 2008 17:47

Book Two
MUAD'DIB


When my father, the Padishah Emperor, heard of Duke Leto's death and the manner
of it, he went into such a rage as we had never before seen. He blamed my mother
and the compact forced on him to place a Bene Gesserit on the throne. He blamed
the Guild and the evil old Baron. He blamed everyone in sight, not excepting
even me, for he said I was a witch like all the others. And when I sought to
comfort him, saying it was done according to an older law of self-preservation
to which even the most ancient rulers gave allegiance, he sneered at me and
asked if I thought him a weakling. I saw then that he had been aroused to this
passion not by concern over the dead Duke but by what that death implied for all
royalty. As I look back on it, I think there may have been some prescience in my
father, too, for it is certain that his line and Muad'Dib's shared common
ancestry.

-"In My Father's House," by the Princess Irulan

Paul and Jessica awaken in the stiltent which has been covered by sand during the storm while they slept. Paul says they will hit them in the spice, with desert power, the Fremen are the key. Paul digs them out and tells Jessica that Duncan said he could hold out only this long if he was captured, they need to get moving. She feels that she now lives only for the survival of her son and unborn daughter now. They see jetflares and lasguns in the distance and figure it's Harkonnens hunting them. Paul says they will head South and keep hidden in the rocks. As they take their first step 'thopters appear above them.

I don't understand, why did Emperror Saddam had Villainous Breakdown?

Didn't he wanted and kinda helped to destroy Atreides? "Never get more popular than the boss, unless you intend to sack him"
I rarely post because most of the time I feel I have nothing to add

There is nothing to fear but fear itself for Fear is the mind-killer.Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. Fear kills me over and over. Without fear, I die but once.

I'm sorry, I think I understand your question now... you're refering to the epigraph before the chapter.

Shaddam was upset in the manner in which Leto died, not just that he died, because Leto was like him, royalty. This means that if it could happen to Leto it could happen to any of the Great House leaders or even the Emperor.
