McCaffrey was extremely generous in the handing out of encomiums
to put on book covers.

_The Road Goes Ever On_ is *art song*, a whole other genre of music.
It's more like Shubert -- you must look at the original source, both text
and music. See how the composer set it. In art song, the piano and voice
are partners -- Schubert was really the first to make them equal partners in
his lieder. Listen to his "Gretchen am Spinnrade" and you can hear the
piano filling in the emotional moods in places where the text has broken.
After the singer sings about his kiss, the spinning wheel accompaniment of
the piano stops and makes a few tentative starts, unable to get back to
business, as it were. After a few measures, both singer and piano are back
on the main theme. This is the tradition which Swann is working in.
P.S. "Erlkoenig" is very mythopoeic, too.

many books it's become a catch phrase in the Bratman household.
- A wonderful writer and scholar on the Inklings. The work I know of hers
best is *Splintered Light: Logos and Light in Tolkien's World.* It's
published by Eerdman's in Grand Rapids, MI. An Amazon search may net you
some of her later work.
