Puzzles, labyrinths, three-dimensional spaces, multilayered texts embedded with new clues discovered in each reading, and sometimes even blank pages where the narrator falls silent, subvert the very notion of a definitive reading of Dineson's (1885-1962) texts. Nevertheless, says Brantly (Scandinavian literature, U. of Wisconsin-Madison) there are hints, clues, allusions, and hidden meaning in the text that help readers understand them better. She assumes readers have read the texts. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
