He pokes uite a bit of fun at academics himself included The only reason the book was the least bit intelligible to me is because I know Graves' peculiar and complex take on Greek mythology and European pre Christian religion One erudite reviewer on GoodReads began his 1 star critiue with This is a profoundly stupid book That made me laugh as much as the book did Because the man is right If you read the story from a modern POV it is incomprehensible
