Exceptionally interesting, thoughtful and well researched commentary on a narrative I found challenging, despite having been a childhood fan of Weirdstone and Gomrath. Thank you.

Thank you Maureen for this fascinating and revealing analysis of Boneland. I read The Weirdstone of Brisingamen and Moon of Gomrath as a child and was initially disappointed and confused by Boneland when it came out. Having just re-read it and enjoyed and appreciated it far more, reading your review has helped me to understand the book and has placed Boneland in its mythological context.

What a wonderfully researched and delivered review. Thanks so much Maureen. I was fortunate enough to be born a bus ride away from the Gawain landscape and, like Alan, feel that the depth of the poet's descriptions mythologises the world. Cheers!
