Book Description

10 Nov 2011
A jewelled whirlpool of a tale, Somnium is a richly poetic pagan fantasy, a narrative of shifting levels presented in a dazzling array of styles, ranging from that of the medival romance through Elizabethan tragedy to the Gothic novel and the sublime madness of the Decadents. With its delirious and heartbroken text spiralling out from the classical myth of Endymion and the Greek lunar goddess Selene, Somnium is an extraordinary odyssey through love and loss and lunacy, illuminated by the silvery moonlight of its exquisite language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing. 6 May 2012
By Alex S
As unwieldy and captivating in structure as the best, maddest gothic novels - Alan Moore mentions Potocki in his afterword, but I was also reminded of Melmoth the Wanderer - yet in tone more like Swinburne, had he written a novel off the back of a Clark Ashton Smith binge. The best autobiographical novel set 200 years ago you're ever likely to read, and in terms of bringing the Greek myths to modern London, akin to a less frenzied Greek Street.
