"A journey is an hallucination" : Flann O'Brien's The Third Policeman
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Flann O�Brien�s novel, The Third Policeman, consists of many unrealistic events, thus sharing similarities with the fantastic piece, Alice�s Adventures in Wonderland. The events and characters within the O�Brien�s storyline obtain no source of reason, and their actions and comments hold no sense of logic. Although, if particular aspects of the novel are studied further and in relation to the aftereffects of trauma, O�Brien�s work is more realistic and logical than what is fantastically portrayed on the text�s surface.
