Chapter 27

Postby Freakzilla » 13 Feb 2008 17:52

It is said of Muad'Dib that once when he saw a weed trying to grow between two
rocks, he moved one of the rocks. Later, when the weed was seen to be
flourishing, he covered it with the remaining rock. "That was its fate," he
explained.

-The Commentaries

As Ghani and Leto dive into the slit in the rocks, one of the tigers slashes Ghani's leg. Leto kills one tiger with his knife and Ghani kills the other, but not before the second tiger slashes her arm. Leto treats her wounds and then feels a painfull sense of loss, realizing that they will soon be parted for the first time in their lives. Now he must undergo the metamorphasis and they will never again be able to share the same experiences. Leto heads off to Jacurutu/Fondak and Ghani, on her way back to the seitch, hypnotizes herself into believeing that Leto has been killed by the tigers. As an unexpected side effect, she looses her Other Memory. She hears a worm coming and thinks it must be from the throws of the dying cats. She sees search torches lit at Tabr, a dark spot making its way toward her, plans a rout back to avoid that and reminds herself to becareful at the qanat, nothing must prevent her telling how Leto died saving her from the tigers.

Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

One of my all-time favorite quotes.
If you fart in the wilderness, and a bear eats you before you can smell it, does it matter if it makes an odor?

I like the epigraph too, a nice simple metaphor for Paul's accomplishments on Dune. However, as often happens, I don't see the connection to the chapter contents. Any ideas?

Also, in the midst of this chapter I was amused to come across a full color ad for Kent cigarettes. That's a new one to me. Late 70s pb, of course.

Perhaps it's an analogy to the known universe with and without the Paul and his descendants, but tbh I don't know .

To me it suggests that Paul is somehow separated from fate.

Could it not have been the weed's fate to have Paul remove the rock in the first place?
