F22. What is the significance of the angels?

Strangely enough, there is NO mention of angels anywhere in
the FWWM shooting script (not in the conversation between
Laura and Donna, not the picture in Laura's room, not the
appearance of the angel Ronette sees in the train car, and
not the angel Laura sees at the end of the movie), so the
angel concepts were definitely a last-minute addition by

It seems safe to assume that the disappearance of the angel
from the picture in Laura's room signifies the hopelessness
of her situation, that Ronette was saved/watched over by her
angel in the train car, and Laura was "redeemed" or escaped
from her living hell at the end of the movie.  Some on the
net have suggested that the appearance of the angel at the
end signifies Laura has made it to the White Lodge (see
questions E39 and E40).

Hvordan engle ser ud

Held a sword, staff or chain with his hand (Numbers 22:23; Joshua 5:13; Judges 6:21; Revelation 20:10), In white or as white as snow (John 20:12; Matthew 28:3), White apparel (Acts 1:10), Shining garments (Luke 24:4), Clothed in pure bright linen and chests girded with golden bands (Revelation 15:6), Rainbow on its head, clothed with a cloud, face like sun, feet like pillars of fire (Revelation 10:1-3), Countenance of the Angel of God, very awesome, like lightning (Judges 13:6; Matthew 28:3)

WHAT ARE YOU, enhver engel er:

Every Angel is terror. And yet,
ah, knowing you, I invoke you, almost deadly
birds of the soul. Where are the days of Tobias,
when one of the most radiant of you stood at the simple threshold,
disguised somewhat for the journey and already no longer awesome
(Like a youth, to the youth looking out curiously).
Let the Archangel now, the dangerous one, from behind the stars,
take a single step down and toward us: our own heart,
beating on high would beat us down. What are you?

Early successes, Creation’s favourite ones,
mountain-chains, ridges reddened by dawns
of all origin – pollen of flowering godhead,
junctions of light, corridors, stairs, thrones,
spaces of being, shields of bliss, tempests
of storm-filled, delighted feeling and, suddenly, solitary
mirrors: gathering their own out-streamed beauty
back into their faces again.

(fra Rilkes Duino elegier)

William Blakes engel:

I dreamt a dream! What can it mean?
And that I was a maiden Queen
Guarded by an Angel mild:
Witless woe was ne'er beguiled!

And I wept both night and day,
And he wiped my tears away;
And I wept both day and night,
And hid from him my heart's delight.

So he took his wings, and fled;
Then the morn blushed rosy red.
I dried my tears, and armed my fears
With ten-thousand shields and spears.

Soon my Angel came again;
I was armed, he came in vain;
For the time of youth was fled,
And grey hairs were on my head.
