Abstract: “The Door in the Wall” is a retouching of “The Magic Shop,” tackling the great questions of mankind in a sad, haunting tragedy. Or is it a tragedy? The reader is called upon to weigh their opinion in: is death – at best – a return to the paradisiacal state of our childhood, blooming with innocence, homecoming, and belonging, at least an escape from a life of disappointment, cruelty, and failure, or at worst a sadistic trick which lures the aimless and confused into its open arms, only to crush them with merciless ferocity?
