Summary of “Childhood” by Markus Natten

Book Review   by:akso6o175     Original Author: Andy Kester Sawian
ª
 
The speaker pondered deeply upon the spiritual questions of life and ultimately realized the fact that his childhood days were finally gone down into the past of eternity for good and would never return. Childhood would now only remain in his memories. He wandered if the end of childhood was the day he ceased to be eleven years old. The time when he realized that Heaven and earth could not be found in Geography and never could be.
            Where did his childhood go? Was it the time he realized that adults were not all they seemed to be? They talked of love and they preached of love, but did not act so lovingly nor practiced what they preached. Was that the day. Where did his childhood go? Was it when he found out that his mind was really his? To use it whichever way he chose? To produce thoughts that was not those of other people but his and his alone. Was that the day? Where did his childhood go? It went to some forgotten place that is hidden in a baby’s face. That was all that he knew and that was all that he remembered.

    review

    it is just a rewriting of the lines of the poem which is itself so poignant in meaning and carries a global theme bringing out the irony of this world from a child's point of view,a subtle satire on the adult's duality and so on.very sad to see such mediocre matter being published.

    Spelling mistake

    "He wandered if the end of childhood was the day he ceased.....", here instead of wander it should be wondered.
