Essays on A Wind in the Door

A Wind in the Door by Madeleine L’Engle is the sequel to A Wrinkle in Time and the second of her four-book “Time” series.  The Time series explores concepts that are part science and part spirituality, a mix that attempts to show that science and religion are not necessarily incompatible.

In this book the O’Keefes learn that Charles Wallace is sick and part of the cause is due to the mitochondria and the fictional farandolae that live within them.  There is a being that is trying to destroy the world by un-naming things around them.  Meg learns she is a “namer” and she has to save the person she hates most in the world, the principal of her old school where Charles is still going.  To do this however she has to show love towards the principal and be able to tell the difference between the real Mr. Jenkins and that of the Echthroi doubles that wish to take over and destroy everything.

In order to save Charles Wallace, they have to travel within one of his mitochondria and talk a larvae farandolae into maturing which the Echthroi are trying to keep them from doing.  During this whole time Charles Wallace is meeting up with a cherubim name Proginoskes who is in Charles’ new class taught by a tall, robed being called Blajeny.  They are being taught ways of the world that no human could understand but Charles.  Telepathic powers show that he is not normal like the rest of human kind.  Meg is almost un-named but ends up saving the day once again showing her love for her brother even if she finds him a nuisance at times.

  • The concept of “naming” things has a strong link to certain biblical references, revealing the deeper concepts of the Time series as it shifts into more of the spiritual aspects around the O’Keefe family.  Discuss how these concepts interrelate to religious beliefs and describe how they link science into these beliefs, if they do, and why you feel that way.

Just as Meg must learn that she is more than what she thinks she has been, students in higher education must learn that they too are or can become more than their past self.  Sometimes, just as Meg needed help, students need help as well.  This is particularly true when writing about complex stories such as A Wind in the Door.  This is where our staff of skilled, dedicated writers comes in.  With their talent, each of our writers can prepare literary essays on this and many other literary works.  To arrange for help with your next assignment, contact us today.
