I just re read this updated edition of Sylvia Wynter s classic 1962 novel which I had not revisited for close to fifteen years It is extraordinary upon the second reading than before perhaps because I read the novel this time with other themes in mind To my delight there were many elements of it that I did not notice before and frankly I wonder if I truly read it carefully before All in all this was uite enjoyable for it calls into uestion not only millenarian movements purposes but the realms in which we look for and find transformative hope in moments of despair
