Reviews for Agent Grangerís Elegy
|Never seen Bellatrix as the tragic heroine. Until now.Nicely done.|
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.|
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! |
Thanks. A tragedy of the eldest, and possibly most capable sibling, supporting the family tradition to excess.
|I enjoyed reading this. The poem, as well as your description of the albums, was very poignant. Thanks for posting!|
Thanks. Bad girls are more fun.
|I have tears in my eyes. Great job!|
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.|
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!|
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.|
Thanks. The paean tries to look under the surface.
