Eager Spring

Barfield's last work of fiction illustrates how the destruction of our environment corresponds with divorcing ourselves from meaning and the significance of language. The evolution of human consciousness is also a theme as the protagonist Virginia (Vi) searches for meaning and grows more self-aware. Because of her increased understanding about language, meaning, and nature, Vi joins an environmental group and writes a fairy tale that allegorizes her experiences and can serve as a call to readers to take action as well.
