really liked it
bookshelves: have-read-multiple-times
Read in January, 1980

Largely enjoyed reading this, some playful writing. Not sure just what to make of it, though; it's largely light, but it's a playfully (that word again) self-conscious adaptation of Mythic High Tragedy. Nor do I feel it were justice to the author, to think overmuch on its Meaning. There's a feet-in-boots, head-in-clouds feel to it.
