    Trying to review The Wind in the Willows is a strange undertaking In the introduction to my copy, A A Milne wrote One can argue over the merits of most books one does not argue about The Wind in the Willows The young man gives it to the girl with whom he is in love, and if she does not like it, he asks her to return his letters The old man tries it on his nephew, and alters his will accordingly When you sit down to re

    An Edwardian children s book that ends with the reimposition by force of the traditional squirearchical social order on the upstart lower orders as represented by Weasels, Stoats and Ferrets.It is a through introduction to traditional British conservatism, of the Country Life rather than the Economist variety, for children with a side order of mild paganism As such is an unwitting counterpoint to The Ragged Trousered Philanthropist

    This book was written in 1908, when the world was being shaken by the newly self confident masses Women were propagandising for the vote the Irish were demanding Home Rule the Trade Unions were showing their strength Socialism theatened A spectre was haunting Europe, and particularly England Wind in the Willows is an elegant parable about class struggle, about the dangers of decadant country house living in the face of powerful revolutionary for

    Some of the best children s classics have started with an adult inventing stories to tell to a child Alice s Adventures in Wonderland , Winnie the Pooh , Peter Pan and even Watership Down all began this way, as did many others The Wind in the Willows is another such Like them, it is a novel which can be read on many levels, and arguably has a hidden subtext And like some others, its writing was prompted by a family tragedy.Kenneth Grahame had alrea

    A genuinely refreshing little romp through tunnels pastures Zen is something that s somehow very surprisingly reached This is the ultimate impression the reader is left with.Outstanding, engaging and fun than Aesop s menagerie, it moralizes vaguely on fidelity, the value of friendships associations The final sentence even addresses finally the main target audience the lil tykes and treasured ones and even sustains with the theory that looks may be deceiving the Badger is

    Lavishly described meandering adventures of the mild nature The Wind in the Willows has an intrinsically English flavor The characters are happy to live their ordinary lives with only a hint of interest in the wider world Too strong of an adventurous spiritedness is considered uncouth Such hearty frivolity as Toad s is frowned upon to the utmost Unfortunately this goes for the author, too Kenneth Grahame s plots are not terribly gripping due to their lack of depth He seems pleased rathe
