Thoughts on "The Kingdom of the Wicked"
- When finishing reading "The Kingdom" of the Wicked", I was mightily impressed with the descriptions of the Great Fire of Rome and of the Eruption of Vesuvius, see my blog http://romanhistorybooks.typepad.com/ .
Burgess is using an epic form, especially in the Vesuvius event, and the thought came to me that I had liked the book more if more of it had been written that way.
