Discuss The Last Unicorn

  1. Why exactly is she unconscious after being turned into a human? Just something I've always wondered.
  2. After Amalthea wakes up and realizes she's been turned into a human, why does Molly say "oh please no," and start crying after Amalthea asks Schmendrick what he did to her? Molly already knew "she'll go mad!"
  3. I find it rather surprising that Schmendrick is unfazed by Amalthea being completely nude. But then I do admire and respect him for not acting like a pervert. LOL Could you imagine if Prince Lir happened to be out and about during this time, and came across her while she was still naked?...

My thoughts/guesses:

  1. The stress of the transformation.
  2. It's one thing knowing something will happen, but another dealing with it when it happens.
  3. The unicorn didn't have clothes, so why would Amalthea? Magic in Peter S. Beagle's world isn't as coy as it is in a Disney film.

It makes sense that Amalthea wouldn't have clothes; I'm just surprised that Schmendrick was unfazed, but I also admire him for it. He did say that the magic chose her new form, not him.
