Celestial Omnibus by: EM Forster

Posted by Deanna (64.12.96.41) on 03:23:02 03/01/03

I need help with some questions to finish up my homeschool. If any one is able to help please let me know.

1. What is the relationship between the bus ride and reading in "The Celestial Omnibus"? What similarities are there between reading and taking an adventure or trip?

2. How does the boy's attitude toward adventure differ from that of Mr. Bons? How does this attitude relate to reading?

Homeschool, eh?

We must be doing the same course; I have those questions too. Did you ever find any info? If you did, maybe you could email it to me or something? (shmellypooo@aol.com) It would help me a lot :)
Thanks,
~melly~

1)The bus ride is a metaphor for reading. A reader can take a trip through a book by using some imagination, and go on adventures with his mind.

2)Describe the reactions of the boy and Bons. One should be open to the classics and appreciate the story.

the answers are in the book.

I think Tara (see above) answered the questions quite concisely.

But I can repeat them:

Q: What is the relationship between the bus ride and reading in "The Celestial Omnibus"? What similarities are there between reading and taking an adventure or trip?

A: The bus ride is a METAPHOR for reading. A reader can take a trip through a book by using some imagination, and go on adventures with his mind.

Q: How does the boy's attitude toward adventure differ from that of Mr. Bons? How does this attitude relate to reading?

A: (Describe the reactions of the boy and Bons. One should be open to the classics and appreciate the story.) The boy is open to the classics, he perceives all the things by the heart, not by the mind as Mr Bons does. Relation to reading: You should be open to the story, to emotions etc. You ought to connect the mind (what you read, what you know etc.) with the heart (what you feel).

Cheers, Cleo

Why does Albert Edward believe that the vicar is the wrong person for St. Peter's congregation?

Verger

Posted by Rebecca (69.243.203.235) on :00:25:27 23/08/06

Albert Edward does not believe the vicar is qualified because he is from the East End and is not as classy as the people in the congregation
