Comment:        Re: SHK 14.0697 Re: Critical Encounters of the Negative Kind

I find that I must concur with Mr. Kennedy.  C. S. Lewis' "An Experiment
in Criticism" is highly informative, and it has proven useful to me in
making distinctions between story and Story, or between story and Myth,
if you prefer.  It helped to inform the background from which I wrote my
Master's thesis on "Romeo and Juliet," incidentally arguing that Juliet
is the heroine of the play, with Romeo as her "supporting actor," so to
speak.  (I realize that that statement should probably go in a different
thread; I apologize.)
