Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2019.560 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: On one level, this is the story of Blodeuwedd escaping from her captivity. On another level, it’s a lesbian love story.

Con: I’m not familiar with the original myth, but I had a hard time buying the idea that Lleu would cooperate in setting up the conditions for his own death.
