Reviews for Agent Grangerís Elegy


MayavanavihariniHarini (Signed )1:
Never seen Bellatrix as the tragic heroine. Until now.Nicely done.

Author's Response:
Thanks.  Glad you enjoyed it.  One could say the eldest daughter took the family values to extremes although one could also say that a sympathetic view of Bellatrix probably lies outside canon.

A fitting elegy, for a very dark star.

Author's Response:
Thanks.  It tries to match the simple sparseness of a Viking lament.

Beautiful narrative and cadence of the prosody--evoking a specific cadence, metrical structure with the lines of verse, a chivalric saga to be wailed out by Hermione--provoking in a somber/poignant way a glimpse into a time no more, when Bellatrix turned and chose/was led down a path of no return--lovely, lovely work!

Author's Response:
Thanks.  A tragedy of the eldest, and possibly most capable sibling, supporting the family tradition to excess.

I have tears in my eyes.  Great job!

Author's Response:

Thanks.  The intent was a stark and plain-told tragedy.

Hermione was uniquely qualified to make that visit, since she took the polyjuice.  I like the way you stress the warrior lineage that came into play in this family's life.

Author's Response:

Thanks.  The warrior images and verses were added to prepare the audience since an early reader of the first version thought Granger's paean appeared too abruptly. 

Rose of the West's response: I think they're appropriate, and they add to the pathos of the whole Black family situation.  Once so grand and now... nothing.

I like it! Very unusual angle!

Author's Response:

Thanks.  There's a viking saying that a tale told by one person is only half told.

Potent magic that was.  I do like that her elegy acknowledged that she had good in her at some point.

Author's Response:

Thanks.  The paean tries to look under the surface.
