I'm sure this is a fine example of what its attempting, which was a medieval/fantasy? romance thing. But i just

Beautifully written with an author's tongue clearly held firmly in cheek. Just as Milton preferred to write about the devil, Cabell obviously preferred to write about Demetrios--and who can blame him?
