• "I have been told that human beings seldom dream about cherubim" : unconventional representations of the divine in Madeleine L'Engle's Time Quartet

      Seitz, Jeffrey D. (2020-05)
      Madeleine L'Engle's writing is a kaleidoscope of science and theology, with an abundance of literary and spiritual insights. For decades, readers have been inspired by the familiar characters in her Time Quartet novels. Yet these readers are confounded by the supernatural beings she populated in the texts. One of the ways this mythopoeic writer indicated her spiritual inclinations was by her unconventional representations of the divine through her masterful use of the suspension of disbelief that serves as a possible spiritual vision. Decades after the publication of A Wrinkle in Time, her writing continues to inspire and puzzle readers. Madeleine L Engle Time Quartet novels continue to evoke curiosity among literary scholars because of her boldness for integrating spirituality with science.
