Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West
by Gregory Maguire
Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West Volume 2, Chapter 2, Part 6 Summary
How It All Goes Down
- Back in Shiz, Boq finds an interesting picture in a book that shows a witch cradling a beast to her breast and preparing to nurse it:
Dramatically, or teleologically, this image seemed some sort of a hybrid of the creation myths of the Animals. (220.127.116.11)
- Boq rips the picture out of the book (risking a library fine) and takes it to Elphaba.
- The two discuss the painting and Elphaba says that Dillamond is getting more secretive and distracted by his work. He's on to something major.
- Elphaba says Galinda is sulking, and she and Boq argue over his feelings for Galinda:
"She is my world" he answered.
"Your world is too small if she is it." (18.104.22.168-19)
