    Hooray for English majors. I'm and English Lit. undergrad right now. I would like to read your paper when you are finished if you wouldn't mind sharing it.
    There's one hole in every revolution, large or small. And it's one word long.. people. No matter how big the idea they all stand under, people are small and weak and cheap and frightened. It's people that kill every revolution.

    I was an English minor in college, with a concentration in American lit. I actually did do a twenty page paper on Stephen King for a seminar I was enrolled in during my senior year. It was a comparative research paper into gothic literature with a lot of comparisons to writers like Hawthorne and Poe, with an accompanying oral presentation. I don't think I even mentioned The Dark Tower, although I could be mistaken. I'll have to go and check.

    This sounds like fun though.

    Tell us how it works out, Robin.

    Speaking as another English major, I'd like to read that paper, too.

    Eddie is on an airplane. Roland finds a door on the beach titled "The Prisoner". When he opens it, he can see through Eddie's eyes. When he steps through the door, he enters Eddie's body and can control his movements.

    Yes, I believe Roland is actually "inside" of Eddie like a person who needs to be exorcised.

    As strange as that is, King really makes it work for the purpose. Makes it believable.

    Yer bob, Roland is inside Eddie and looking through his eyes.

    Eddie's running drugs for a local drug dealer. If you're not there already, keep reading, it's about to get real good.

    Roland's conciousness is inside of Eddie, his body is is not. His body remains next to the door.

    I believe it is meant to imply that he uses magic to move about.

    My interpretation has always been that darkle and tinct mean the ability to shift between the various dimensions and times at will.

    Yeah, same here. Interesting when Patrick says that Los' darkles and tincts at the time he was trying to capture his image with his mind..its as if Los' is always doing that..shifting between dimensions and times. Makes sense.

    Think about it, the two characters it is used in reference to are Roland and Los. These are the two we all seem to agree are singular entities, without twinners, able to move between worlds as themselves and by their own doing in most cases. I think the phrase describes this nature.

    Good call. But also remember Legion is described as darkling and tincting..so Roland and Los' aren't the only ones.
