"A Little Allegory of the Soul" -- "The Runaway Bunny" in "Wit"

We watched the HBO production of Wit last night. (Meg and I watched it originally over 15 years ago.) The Pulitzer-winning play is by Margaret Edson. This production starred Emma Thompson. The penultimate scene has Vivian's mentor (actually, her dissertation advisor) visit her during her last minutes. Her mentor reads The Runaway Bunny to her, making a few trenchant observations about the story while doing so. Well worth viewing (as is the entire play).
