Reviews

The single most beautiful, solid, unearthly and unjustifiably forgotten novel of the twentieth century ... a little golden miracle of a bookA Shakespearian tragi-comedy, a murder mystery, and a multi-faceted allegory all in one; and a damn good story, too[Mirrlees has] a view of her own about books and style ... and a corresponding taste for the beautiful and elaborate in literatureThe tone is assured and urbane, with aphorisms dripping from every other sentence and a real sense of the menacing and the bizarre. It has been a major influence on genre fantasy since its republication in the late 1960s - Cambridge Guide to Women Writers[involves] fundamental questions of how a society and its members understand their own history, and how they make sense of the conflicts embedded in social class and political power - TLS
