:) I'm quite happy to be able to say I haven't a *clue* what they
were thinking of when they did that cover! I think it would be a
sign of an even more unhinged mind than mine already is.
Just because I completely forgot to mention it at the time, the
babbling about the aspects of the goddess was based on "The Heroic
Ideal" - the essay on F&H in The Lion and the Unicorn. That hasn't
been mentioned here for a while, IIRC, and a lot of people may have
joined since the last time. It is quite a revelation about all the
influences & references in F&H, IMO.
Anyway, I really like your idea about the hair colour, Rebecca. And
doesn't Mary Fields have the same kind of hair too? Which might be
reason to try to re-evaluate her a bit. I tend to get too caught up
in Polly's feelings to attempt to do her justice. :)
>Gosh, and all I thought of was Eudora from Bewitched (Samantha's mother or
>aunt.) I thought I was erudite, too.
I hope I didn't give the impression that I *knew* any of that stuff
about the nymphs! When I said I couldn't think of what Rebecca was
talking about, I only meant that I was sitting there thinking "Eudora
& Mabel - who're they?".
