‘Charlie and the chocolate factory’ is a book most of us associate our childhood with. However revisiting the book as an adult makes one feel that there are some deeper themes at play here.

Recently had a brainwave watching Burton’s adaptation for the umpteenth time that the naughty children’s fate has something to do with the seven deadly sins.Did some research and came across some articles suggesting that C&CF might have been based upon Dante’s long poem ”Inferno’ where the poet visits the seven levels of Hell and sees people getting punished for their sins.
Woah 😱
