I only had time to read the one chapter so far before having to return it to the library, but i can say it is very much a librarians lit crit book. It does suggest many different titles to explore if you are looking for a certain theme you would like to read more of. On the subject of the green man, i will say it had some interesting points i didnt expect.

Overly burdened with theory and showing evidence of having begun life as a dissertation. If I weren't a stolid reader of literary criticism I'd have grown impatient with the author's continual reiteration of themes and the tiresome summaries -- at the beginnings and ends of chapters and often in the middles as well -- of what he was about to say or had said. However, a useful guide to the subject and avoids the more obvious pitfalls.
