In Flaubert’s “The Legend of St. Hospitator”, we see how the charcters’ dreams and illusions come true, but what is more amazing is how they come true illusions. In the beginning of the story, Flaubert decribes the kingdom from top of the castle and works him self down. This is a clue to the reader for Julian’s destiny.
