Over 500g at some 1136pp. In "The Rebel Angels," Maria and Darcourt alternate in narrating the novel's theme (obsession) before escaping from its grip by their mutual assistance, while other characters are less fortunate. "What's Bred in the Bone" narrates the artistic development of Canadian painter Francis Cornish, which is crowned by his stunning Marriage at Cana, an iconographic presentation of his personal myth; a color reproduction of Bronzino's "Allegory" exemplifies their stylistic kinship. While "The Lyre of Orpheus" is ostensibly focused on the completion and staging of an unfinished Hoffmann opera, it narrates the ameliorative personal development of the characters who interact during that project.
