I am getting more from the Dune series this time around, and enjoying it more. More of it makes sense, not just the words that have become more familiar parts of our vocabulary, or my broadened perspective on world cultures, but the philosophy behind it, the personal motivations, the references to global history Ė it is rather like reading Huck Finn and other Twain books as an adult. I donít know how old I was when I read Dune the first time around, college? But clearly, I was too young to understand the deeper meanings, the reason Dune is a classic.
