MEDIA REVIEWS
"Holtsmark avoids speaking in generalities; instead he turns to the text and methodically examines language, technique, the treatment of animals and of the hero, and recurring themes.. ..Succeeds at the very least in shedding light on the creation of an enduring modern mythology by giving weight to the classical influences acting on its author."-AB
