The Phantom Tollbooth: Rhyme and Reason
So if you already think you will name your next pet couple Rhyme and Reason, we already have a reservation. Rhyming and reason are the two fair damsels who have been banished from the Kingdom of Wisdom and must be saved. They' re giving Milo a reason to go looking for him.
While they were still there, Rhyme and Reason had a ton of fans: "Everyone adored the queens for their great elegance, their gentleness and their capacity to resolve all controversy fairly and reasonably" (6.16). However, without the expressives there is no "controversy". If rhyme and reason are gone, so is rationality (hence their name..... understood?).
Okay, so if Rhyme and Reason are so bright and mighty, why can't they come back after they've been in exile? Anything that can tell us about rhyme and reason as a character, it can tell us even more about what they are. For Norton Juster it's not difficult to find out what Rhyme and Reason allegorise (represent): yes, that's right, rhyme and reason.
What does that mean for lower case letters and reason? Perhaps this force sometimes resists reason? Perhaps we should be fighting for reason, no matter how difficult it seems?
The Phantom Tollbooth: Rhyme & Reason
In' The Phantom Tollbooth' Milo goes on a quest to save rhyme and reason. All agree that this salvation will resolve all the troubles of the realm. Who is rhyme and reason then? Phantom Tollbooth recounts the tale of a young man by the name of Milo who is travelling to a foreign country known as the Wise World.
While Milo is traveling, he finds many things that confuse him. Dictionopolis is the town of words, where humans use as many words as possible when they speak. The town of numbers, Digitopolis, where humans refused to use words and wrote news consisting only of numbers (so: 4738 1919, 667....).
A lot of the folks Milo's seeing tell him something's gone wrong in the realm. That'?s how Milo described the problem: As the mathematician's reply summarizes the issue of the realm of wisdom: ''It has been like this since the banishment of rhyme and reason''. In Dictionopolis, while in jail, Milo encounters Faintly Macabre, who gives him the Rhyme and Reason tale.
There are no queen of pure reason and sweet rhyme in the realm of wisdom. Princess of sweet rhyme and princess of pure reason are the adopted girls of the old queen who established the realm of wisdom. At the time of the king's death, he gave the realm to his two children and ordered them to look after the queenesses.
They followed his orders for a while and the principesses assisted in settling disputes between the siblings. It was the principesses who ruled that numbers and words were the same. None of the two princes liked this reply, so they banned their nuns by directing them to the castle in the sky, far away in the mountains of ignorance.
What is the importance of rhyme and reason? What makes these damsels so important? You can make up a rhyme? Reim is the repeating of final tones in words and is often used in poetics. It tends to like the tone of poesy. Princess of Sweet Rhyme is helping to make things say that ring true.
