The brevity and simplicity of his narrative should please unexacting readers. The theme: Sheila as a girl had been in love with Gordon, but he had gone away, she had married Dermot. Though she wanted children, none came. Then Gordon appeared again. As a result of their brief passion Sheila bore a son, Barry. Gordon at first knew nothing of his existence; everyone but Sheila thought he was Dermot's son. Years later, his mother and father dead, Barry met Gordon's daughter Meredith. Not knowing they were half-brother and sister they fell in love. Poet Robinson Jeffers would have carried them on to incest. Author Benét stops things just in time, lets Barry drown. --Time, Oct. 3, 1932
