theme of "plodding" in The Rabbit of Usk. Mind you what
a "theme" might be your writer of pulp remains
uncertain, yet "plodding" he understands. Plodding is
another way of saying "I will hit my head against this
brick wall, and continue to hit my head against this
brick wall until one of us surrenders." Fortunately the
Sabean Genre is wholly forgiving, and allows for such
things as Book Five Point One, which is why some call
the genre, prolix. High praise indeed for a Sphinx.
Yet there could
be a white flag in my future. It seems to me that One Small
Boy, is not only an irritating title but it's more of a
prelude to an understanding of time upon earth that's
necessarily vague, so I placed it in the mind of another.
Out of it emerges the myth of being in a far away
place and time. A glimpse of our hero prior to his venturing
into the world. The agony of childhood, a combination of
what a person remembers and what they didn't know. In short
there's a good chance The Rabbit of Usk will be ten books
and a Prelude. So it's a win/win in my world.
