STONECLIFF by Robert Nathan


Email this review


This is one of Robert Nathan's mysticoated chimeras, set somewhere in ""and some editor-computer should have counted ""that country of the heart the number of times the word shadowy is used. Anyway, there, away from the world in ""sea and mountain solitude,"" lives Edward Granville, a writer with a druidic stance and a treehouse; and Nina, a girl, ""made out of moon-light and sea-foam"" whose capacity in the household is, somewhat undefined; and where is Granville's wife and what is Nina's relationship to him? Ah, all will be revealed but will you be surprised? Who knows. It's a little like spraymist--vaporous and fragrant.
