Nigel Gordon Posted January 28, 2015 Report Share Posted January 28, 2015 I must admit that the moment I started to read this I was gripped. Solsticeman has a way with words which allows him to get to grip with subjects that other writers have difficulty writing about. I know because I have tried to write about the same periods and have given up because I could not get the words to sound right, for me they would not carry the insight into the zeitgeist that was predominant at the time. Without that insight into the zeitgeist such writing becomes weak and immaterial. Solsticeman in elegantly simple language carries that insight into the zeitgeist of the period. He had done this in the past in Wandervogel and in The Moor. Here he does it again. Within the first paragraph I had the feeling of the place, the time and the occasion. I have no idea where this story will take up, though I think I could hazard some guesses but no doubt they will be wrong. Two things though I do know, wherever it goes it is going to be remarkably well told and it will be historically accurate. Solsticeman does his research. Quote Link to comment
