“Maybe the transformation is myth of translation. Did she change before
his eyes, or did his eyes change to free the ties of legend. The answer she
sought is that there is no answer. The truth she found is that there is no truth.
To fight for truth, strive to write is to suffer. ‘Tis better to be free than right.
As she creeps to unlock castle’s back door, path that had narrowed after entrance
is now wider than before, whether Hierophant be saviour – or false prophet.”
