Pressestimmen

'The tone of the novel is like an act of love: the slow and sensuous build-up, followed by an almost unbearable tension and ending in an explosive climax and lingering denouement.' London Free Press '... But like the thumbnail sketches that illustrate the story, this novella alludes to wider dimensions. The real depths of the book are best appreciated with a dictionary of mythology close at hand. The pun in the title suggests Eros is both love and a principle of order in Burnett's classic universe and his story will be built around the great themes of love, suffering and struggle."Burnett's smooth prose abounds in small mythological clues: The dog in an apartment building is Cerberus, a model crouches in a sphinx-like position and the hammers on old duelling pistols are as unique as satyrs. Each paragraph acts more like a drawing than prose. Art, dreams and drawings are a way to explain the world Burnett suggests. The Comedy of Eros is a short book, and so it does not provide a full mythological banquet. But an attentive reader will find it a gournet brunch.' -- Geoff Hancock Toronto Star 'As always, Burnett's writing is extremely polished. Though spare, it is amazingly rich in allusion and synbol without ever being pedantic. The black-and-white sketches that appear throughout the text provide a fine visual counterpoint to it. Since the work is, among other things, unabashedly erotic, secondary school libraries might well find it an inappropriate acquisition. On the other hand, I recommend it most readily for adult collections.' Canadian Materials
