Gustave Doré - Illustration from Little Red Riding Hood by Charles Perrault, 1870
"There are two ways of walking through a wood. The first is to try one or several routes (so as to get out of the wood as fast as possible, say, or to reach the house of grandmother, Tom Thumb, or Hansel and Gretel); the second is to walk so as to discover what the wood is like and find out why some paths are accessible and others are not."
— Umberto Eco, Six Walks in the Fictional Woods
