Well it would seem that the great Lord Dunsany was not infallible I ve loved every other book I ve read by him and came to this one with accordingly high expectations and for the first time he has not lived up to themIn this story we follow Don Rodriuez after he inherits no than a rapier and a mandolin from his lordly father and sets out on a uest to win himself a castle with his rapier and a lover with his mandolinThe problem for me was that the story just wasn t very interesting the protagonist often impossibly dense and surprise plot developments not very surprising All this probably wouldn t have mattered so much if I had found Dunsany s writing as engaging as I usually do but unfortunately it was not the case Many of the passages I found long and laborious and freuently found my attention wandering There were still flashes of Dunsany s brilliance an occaisional turn of phrase that made me chuckle or left me in awe of its beautyOther uirky aspects were freuent inexplicable and entirely unnecessary remarks of the narrator directed straight at the reader Some of the dialogue of the characters left me feeling a little uncomfortable from a politically correct stand point and believe me I m usually uite tolerant of this sort of thing in older authorsOverall I would say that while this story still holds some of that Dunsany magic I would not recommend it to anyone other than die hard fans

This was a different story compared to everything else I read by Lord Dunsany The prose was at times brilliant beautiful use of words language but the story was very simple about the adventures of the young naive Knight Rodriguez whose uest in the story is looking for romantic warsglory and to win castle in Golden age Spain It was clear to see what the writer thought about the knight and his chivalrous ways I have come to expect subtle meaning than that from this legendary writer The storytelling was uneven because I wasn t really interested for many of the early chapters The last chapters story wise was much betterHis prose style and his way with words was interesting than the actual story Thats is why I still enjoyed reading this novel Even a minor work by a master like Lord Dunsany is very enjoyable if you like great style I would not recommend this novel to new readers since there are better novels short stories for that This for completist admirers like me

This as with a lot of Lord Dunsany s work has the initial feeling of being a traditional fairy tale but it s infused with a different sensibility It s a subtle but profound difference The distinction can perhaps only be experienced not uantitatively described This book is worthy of a far wider audience than it currently hasOne of the most noteworthy aspects of this book is its portrayal of the differences in perception between a curious knowledgeable mind and a practically focused mind as personified by Rodriguez and Morano respectively It s a book long illustration of what William Blake meant when he wrote A fool sees not the same tree a wise man sees except the fool occasionally has a effective approach
