Literary and Philosophical References

  • The only literary references in this book are to the Bible. However, none of these Bible references quote specific passages; instead, the story makes more general statements about the positive power of religion, specifically Christianity.

Historical References

  • This story doesn't reference historical figures, probably because its narrator is a horse—we doubt he ever made it to history class.

Pop Culture References

  • No pop culture referenced here—and if there are any Victorian pop culture in-jokes, they unfortunately went over our heads. It's been a while.
