Difficult, dark, sometimes dreadful but this dirge is wonderful at times, filled with little whims and peculiar regrets. Those notions, those simple eulogies, the ephemeral nature of the tale is the only thing that keeps it going as it would be churlish and dross otherwise. I think that you will have to convince your self that this is good. I am unconvinced (other than some well worked passages) still worth a read.
