KIRKUS REVIEW

The personal philosophy of the writer, self-styled ""disciple of Epicurus"" and individualist, as after 15 years he makes a ""return to myself"" and sets down his thoughts on the three components of his existence, love, happiness and greatness. If you care to think about love in such happy terms as ""erotic arousals"" and ""sensitive impulsions"", you may be interested in Mr. Ludwig's continental refinements and titillations, his flowerings, intoxications, intrigues, intrigues, raptures as he fondly discusses the ""combat of love"" -- the lesser relationships of friendship and marriage and maternity...and ends his dialogue with a ""my day"" of his life. A less heroic work from a desk which always houses laurel as inspiration and symbol.
