Walden Two | Chapter 30 | Summary



Frazier, Burris, and Castle stroll about the community on the Walk, past the music rooms and reading rooms. They observe the tranquility and beauty of the evening and the people peacefully going about their business. Frazier notices their appreciation for the surroundings and jokes to Castle, "What were you saying about despotism?" He asks them to meet him for supper later.


This chapter is a clever resolution to the previous one, in which Frazier was constantly on the defense. Frazier's rhetorical question to Castle acts as his final comment Walden Two's beauty and peacefulness is his case in point. After this remark he leaves. Burris thinks Frazier pretends to see someone who wants to talk to him so he can free himself from any more conversation with him and Castle. In Burris's mind this is a transparent maneuver that lets Frazier have the last word.
