First published in 1932, this is an epic novel of terrific force and lyrical intensity interweaving the ancient with the modern as it probes the mystical and spiritual ethos of Glastonbury and its association with the legend of the Grail. ... the only novel produced by an English writer that can fairly be compared with the fiction of Tolstoy and Dostoyevsky...with an immensity to which only Blake could provide any parallel. Go out and acquire it. Almost everything else on your shelf will start looking thin.' - George Steiner'
