Finding a safe haven outside of society

After watching Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, a big part of the movie centered on this safe space for these extraordinary children to live in peace. How do spaces like these Loops come about in our own society? Are they still part of society when they are in these safe spaces?

  • Interesting topic, but it might be stronger for whoever chooses to write it to focus on a variety of literary and/or filmic texts for inquiry, rather than this vague question about "our own society" with one text as its jumping-off point. In inverse approach may prove to be more effective, perhaps looking at Miss Peregrine's Home, as well as Hogwarts, Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters, Narnia, Terabithia, even Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium, and any number of other examples, which can then be followed by a coda about "our own society" as a real-world application of the fantastical motif. I'd also recommend including some examples in which spaces that were initially perceived as safe prove to be quite the opposite upon further scrutiny (such as Lord of the Flies and Coraline). – ProtoCanon 6 years ago
