This was a beautifully written, easy to read, piece of work. Ruth Symes is obviously an an expert but she wears her learning lightly: one does not feel as if one had been wading through a sea of impeneratable facts but when one has finished the piece, one knows that one has learnt something of value. She has told me more about this condition than many other authors who seem to write twice as much but give half the information!
I would be very happy to read more by this author.
