> This remarkably eccentric man with the remarkably eccentric writing style set off into one of the last fringes of society, to a world where the art of the word was cultivated and where a man's worth was set by his speech. He is not an easy read. Yet his writing reflects the sense of a major intellect from one culture confronted by a tradition which is very old, very venerable and yet totally alien from that in which he was raised. That he sought to explain it by creating a new way of writing is perhaps not remarkable.


He seems to have a Solitary Type personality. He isn't interested in people knowing him but rather people knowing his experiences. What a way to live, where you are a part of something but the focus is never on you. He escaped responsibility and maturity in the society of his day. Brilliant!

Would he not be narcissistic?
