Please Medea puts balls of king into her cauldron Medea stands naked in a hot steaming room tending to her gory soup thinking of the time she chopped up her brother and then lay next to his rotting parts on the ship as her father followed in furious close pursuit All the while she has her eye on the prize to be subject to no one especially a manWhile Circe is baroue in its readable elegant prose Vann's novel is poetically charged Many a sentence would alert the grammar police but it doesn't
