Seswatha's dreams. posted 20 June 2007 in The Thousandfold ThoughtSeswatha's dreams. by Nerdanel, Peralogue

The dreams have been changing since before the beginning of the story. Early in TDTCB Achamian is seen keeping records of his dreams, and one of the records is about the burning of the library in Sauglish. Achamian sees his face in the mirror instead of Seswatha's as usual. I think this is a premonition of the burning of the Sareotic library.

I think Seswatha is influencing the dreams, either from the Outside or from the world somehow. (Just as a crackpot theory, perhaps the resemblance between the words "Seswatha" and "Wathi Doll" is no coincidence...) I think the correspondence of what dreams repeat when shows that they are meant to convey topical messages, although the vocabulary is limited. view post
