      The medieval dreamer finds himself before the gates of Hell, where personifications of Peace, Mercy and Truth are gathering, and where he meets a thoroughly anxious, defeatist Satan. The epitaph that opens the book is a quote from the Daedalus section of Ovid’s The Metamorphoses, which translated means, “He turned his mind toward unknown arts.”Like Daedalus, who used his cunning to create unprecedented devices, such as a set of wax wings used to escape from the prison of King Minos, Stephen uses his cunning to create art and a new identity deracinated from his Irish.

And much like the ROMAN DECADENCE book, I found this one a little underwhelming. Maybe it's because Medieval History isn't one of my interests.
