I am not highlighting in this text the obvious genius of Daniel Handler, which is often highlighted. I will write how my theory highlights the genius of Daniel Handler.
What I like best about my theory is how it all fits together when you believe me. Of course, believing in me is not even my obligation, so it is not your obligation to believe in me. Of course, believing in me involves throwing away years and years of researsh, and only masochists like me enjoy it. I'm sorry if I tease you with themes that are already solved for you ... But it's because we have very different ideas about understanding various aspects of ASOUE.
I have identified two general ways of thinking, which are often used to get out of seeming problems: Daniel Handler's mistakes, and the republishing of the books in Averse (I now realize that this word reminds me of some superheroes for some reason) . On the other hand, my thinking involves considering Lemony Snicket an unreliable narrator. When I started to take theory publishing seriously, I had a very strong opinion about how much Lemony Snicket could lie. But talking to you made me think that Lemony did not lie intensively in many cases, and he was probably wrong about some issues. In my mind, this has increased my respect for the character but mainly for Daniel Handler.
It is really a pity that you cannot see the story from my point of view. I know you should already consider Daniel Handler great, but if you saw things from my point of view, you would understand Daniel Handler's very high degree of genius. I'm not saying Daniel Handler has been able to imagine a story full of detail since he started writing ASOUE. I'm saying that Daniel Handler was able to develop as he wrote ASOUE, three time-separated stories and present these three stories in ASOUE. This is so amazing and so great ...
I understand that he managed to do this because he had in mind some events of what would become book 13. Many people do not understand why book 13 is so important. I can say my honest opinion about book 13: although book 13 is called the end, this book is the beginning. In fact, the book The End explains the beginning. The style of narration that Daniel Handler chose to write this story is so special that it is possible only because of an untold event. This event was in the mind of the author, Daniel Handler, when he wrote TBB, and he could never escape it. The scene did not need to be full of detail when it was first imagined and it goes something like this: "One day Lemony Snicket arrived on a desert island. There he found a book in which was written the story of three children who were daughters of the woman who the book was old but had been written by the children themselves when they were trapped on that island Lemony Snicket then proceeded to write and publish the story of these three children because Lemony wanted the general public to know what happened to them instead of this story being kept on a desert island. " This is ASOUE's premise, and this assumption allowed Daniel Handler to write a narrative in which a character has access to the thoughts of other characters. E
in TBB, TRR, and TWW, the premise was simple, and Daniel Handler put Lemony to type the story in his own apartment. In these three books, Lemony is portrayed as a cowardly character, someone with social life and going to dinner parties. Lemony is the contrast. Lemony exists to portray the reader himself who reads a story about suffering safely. But things change when Daniel Handler starts imagining VFD. And Daniel Handler see takes advantage of the loopholes he accidentally left in history to make the story even better. But he can do it very well, making an effort not to contradict himself. The price he had to pay not to contradict himself was to create an even more complex story for Lemony. And I believe he did a good job.
But you know what's the funniest thing about all this? Daniel Handler showed who he is in his work. His deepest beliefs, along with his intimate way of being. And one of the most interesting things Daniel Handler believes is: "Adults despise children's intelligence." Lemony Snicket is the herald of this powerful message, and ASOUE is the very materialization of this message. And the plot involving VFD is the consequence of this message. And do you know who is to blame for the secondary plot of ASOUE getting complex, as well as the mysteries getting too difficult to solve? It's our fault.
We, the readers who were not young children, were saying that his stories were repetitive and formulative. In other words, we were accusing the herald of the message against children's infantilization of writing something infantilized. And you don't know how annoying someone accuses him of being the exact opposite of what he thinks he is. And then he changed.
Daniel Handler had already been interested in the topic of Secret Organizations before he started writing ASOUE. And so he created the most difficult challenges of children's literature in the history of mankind. And believing that, I can say that the answers exist, and Daniel Handler knows what the answers are. And I seriously believe that he was (and may still be) disguised among some communities to have fun watching us discuss the challenges he created. Especially after the Netflix series, he certainly hoped that people would discuss these issues again, as there would be a repolarization of his books. I believe he is hiding between us, just watching, not trying to interfere. After all, VFD members are masters of disguise ... Some even disguise themselves as large talking mammals.
The three stories told by Daniel Handler are the events before the TBB fire, the main events of ASOUE, and finally the events that took place at the time of the book's publication, which took many, many years. When Lemony Snicket published The End, he was certainly already an old man, which character. LSTUA has documents produced, retrieved and handwritten notes throughout these three stories. While TBL has documents produced during the events of the first and third history.
I will write how my theory highlights the genius of Daniel Handler.
