Reply To: The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony

Stephen, I am savouring it slowly – like vintage single malt scotch. Oh, can the man write! I hope someone does it for Indian mythology.

Michael, you have to read it.

I love the way he intertwines all the elements of myth – its relation to language, to rituals, to cosmogony and to history. And you won’t find the joints anywhere when one melds into the other! I found his analysis of Achilles masterly – and I am getting wonderful thoughts on how much he resembles Bheeshma of the Mahabharatha. I might write a blog post on it.

Cheers
Nandu.
