Louis MacNeice tcriles: ' This excursion into realistic myth is based upon various ancient Irish legends about strange adventures in the western seas (the best known of these gave Tennyson the subject for a poem) but, like The Dark Tovier , the theme is used both timelessly and with particular reference to our own time. Nor will it be primarily Irish. Some of it will be satirical, some of it nightmarish, some of it lyrical. In fact, another attempt to write a modern morality.'
