Worms, Flies, and Cheeseballs:And Life Mr. Pat
E.R. Edison’s The Worm Ouroboros inspired the epic-fantasy writers that followed him. This production is of the first edition (1922). The Lords of Demonland are celebrating Lord Juss´s birthday when an envoy arrives from Witchland. He brings demands from King Gorice XI of Witchland that the Lords of Demonland ´´kiss his toe, and acknowledge him to be their King and they, his ill-conditioned, disobedient children´´. The Lords of Demonland reject this utterly and, to settle the matter, they challenge King Gorice to a wrestling match against their champion, Lord Goldry Bluszco. But the situation is worsened by the result of that match and ultimately, war is declared. A war that includes dark magic, sorcery, quests, mystical lands, and heroic high-adventure. Ursula K. Le Guin called it ´´An eccentric masterpiece´´, C. S. Lewis said it represented ´´A new climate of the imagination´´, Orville Prescott said it was ´´A literary event of the first order.´´ Critics compared Tolkien’s writing to it when he first published The Lord of the Rings and he freely acknowledged its influence. Eddison writes his narrative in a lyrical, medieval style and in the tradition of Norse mythology, Arthurian myths, and Greek tragedy. In his short dedication he says, ´´It is neither allegory nor fable but a story to be read for its own sake´´, however, the theme of repetition (the cyclical nature of life, history, and war), is undeniable. The ´´worm (serpent or dragon) Ouroboros´´ is, after all, ´´The serpent which eats its own tail”. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris MacDonnell.
