  • A Swiftly Tilting Planet is a science fiction novel by Madeleine L'Engle, the third book in the Time Quartet. The book's title is an allusion to the poem "Morning Song of Senlin" by Conrad Aiken. Charles Wallace Murry, an advanced and perceptive child in A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door, has grown into adolescence. His intelligence and remarkable goodness carry him through an adventure in time to attempt to save the world from nuclear disaster threatened by Mad Dog Branzillo, the dictator of the fictional South American country of Vespugia. To change the outcome of the present, Charles Wallace must change the past, in a series of "might-have-beens", events which are turning points fought over by the powers of good and evil.
