I’m loving it so far, but hadn’t heard of it before this.
Latro in the Mist: Soldier of the Mist and Soldier of Arete
Does anyone have any thoughts or reactions on it? The Book of the New Sun is an incredible sci-fi novel, and Latro in the Mist, and it’s Egyptian sequel, are both very unique and quality novels. Gene Wolfe is an absolutely phenomenal fantasy author and really, a man who transcends genre fiction not that there is anything wrong with genre fiction. It is disappointing how much of an unknown he seems to be.
Incredibly well received and by all accounts successful, but I so rarely see people discussing his work.
I’m not really larto, but I love all of his metaphors and biblical allusions. I read an interview with him and I remember the interviewer saying that Wolfe had the kind of brilliant intelligence and attitude that makes other people feel smart too. He has an absolutely massive canon too. I still need to read the Short Sun trilogy, Wizard Knight duology and fit in Latro somewhere as well.
He seems to have forgotten to have finished that last one, from what I understand. And that isn’t even close to half the books he has written. He has a ton of anthologies and one shot novels as well.
Nist a very good book. In a way the ancient Greek element wasn’t really a good choice, ltro you know Latin and Greek well the various names he gives things will jar. That said the books have a very good atmosphere, just not in anyway an ancient Greek one no matter what reviewers think.
I really like the use of amnesia as a literary trope. Actually the books REALLY shine when it comes to its formal literary elements in terms of dialogue, plot, pacing, characterization. Also there is a very real sense of threat here and there.
Probably my favorite of his series after New Sun. I thought it was a really neat format for a story and provided a very interesting way to incorporate mythology.
