>Yeah, Bruce, Bob Montgomery's photo of the Dome really puts stop to theverbal magic. To think of the photo in terms of Kubla Khan's pleasuredome is indeed bombastic, as Charlie has said.
>Being a good Romantic, Durrell knows that once you map a territory,it's no longer Romantic.  Maps kill Romanticism, writesBruce.
