ERRATA: Darkness More Visible, by Finola Moorhead.

June 17, 2012

If a ray of light break in upon us, it is but to make darkness more visible. Maria Edgeworth in Lenora, 1805
Finola Moorhead epigram to Darkness More Visible

When I reviewed this book recently, I came to the false conclusion that Finola had written it before Remember the Tarantella. I thought that the dark issues she raised here—personal, social, and aesthetic—were all resolved in the magic of Tarantella. I wanted them to be and so I thought they were. I got sloppy. No excuse.

But no. As much as I hate to face the fact, the Tarantella did not resolve everything. There was, and continues to be, still more darkness visible.

    Hmm, intriguing.

    Marilyn, as Remember the Tarantella is a re-release of a much earlier version. I wonder if you were correct in thinking the latest version resolves some of Darkness More Visible?
