        I haven't gotten to that essay yet (Dancing is on my bedside shelf) but I
        also read Dun Cow years ago and rather liked it. Not sure I've read enough
        OSC to relate it to him, but it definitely had a unique quasi-mythic feel.

        Wasn't there a sequel?

            Mr. Wangerin is a fellow Lutheran who wrote a column in the Lutheran
            magazine for quite some years. I think he's rather an acquired taste. His
            use of English is a little dramatic (affected?) and certainly doesn't suit
            everyone.

              We Lutherans as a gross generality are so little given to drama or affect that we rather prize those who can burst out of the Scandinavian shell. I don t care

                We Lutherans as a gross generality are so little given to drama or affect
                that we rather prize those who can burst out of the Scandinavian shell. I
                don't care for him myself, but then I dislike people who I feel are trying
                to manipulate my emotions, which I think he does. Charles Williams uses the
                language in a very uncommon, even dramatic, way, but I never feel that he is
                trying to manipulate me.
