Description

Three fairy tale sisters journey through the winter forest and down the River Rashingor into the world of men--and beyond. Incorporating verse and song, RASHINGOR has been called "a virtuoso piece of its kind," an anti-Cinderella fairy tale, and anti-heroic song-of-the-hero, a literary feminist fantasy. Written during the turmoil of the 70's, it owes nothing to later fantasy writers like J. K. Rowling, but with its swift and finely-wrought prose, its stirring poetry, and its deep and sensitive understanding of the epic/romantic tradition, it is a work J. R. R. Tolkein would have loved--not for its echoing of his own work, but for its freshness and brilliance in carrying forward the tradition that inspired him.show more
