Open Cast


Does Good King Wenceslas have an open cast mine? An odd question, you might think, but why else would the peasant trudge through a good league of snow, from the forest fence, to gather fuel in view of Wenceslas’s palace/castle? Presumably, there’s wood in the forest?
Either that, or the peasant is trying a bit of emotional blackmail, playing on Wenceslas’s good nature.
