    Hi Buddhist_32, welcome to the site!

    I don't know the poem, but I am sure someone here can help you out.

    Default In need of a serious trivia fan

    Hello,

    I'm a graduate student in English literature writing a paper on the Dark Tower. I've been told that there's a line somewhere in The Dark Tower where King writes that "in one world, the tower manifests as a lion"

    Does anyone have any idea which book this is in?

    I'd love to find the citation, I thought maybe someone would have an ebook version that was searchable or something...I just don't have time to re-read the series yet and can't remember where the quote is.

    Thanks a million,
    Caleb

    I would have thought that it would be in Song of Susannah or The Dark Tower. Don't recall that quote myself, but those two books are the ones where the ka-tet meet King.

    it's a tiger, not a lion:

    There was a pause during which those gathered in that place considered the idea. Then Feemalo said, almost apologetically:
    “The cost might not be so great if one were just to consider this world, which we might call Tower Keystone, since the Dark Tower exists here not as a rose, as it does on many, or an immortal tiger, as it does on some, or the ur-dog Rover, as it does on at least one—”

    Isn't part of that quote "the ur-dog Rover"?
    "It's his eyes, Roland thought. They were wide and terrible, the eyes of a dragon in human form" - Roland seeing the Crimson King for the first time.

    "When the King comes and the Tower falls, sai, all such pretty things as yours will be broken. Then there will be darkness and nothing but the howl of Discordia and the cries of the can toi" - From Song of Susannah

    "A dog named Rover?" Susannah asked, bemused. "Do you really say so?"

    it's DT7, but I don't know anything about pages, I don't have it in form of a real book. It's Chapter III: THE CASTLE OF THE CRIMSON KING, Part Four.
