''describes the love of a dolphin for Charlie - based on Charles Sorley (1895-1915) - a glowingly beautiful young man who arrives at a Caribbean island to tutor a young girl, falls in love with the mother, is saved from a were-shark by Gloomer the dolphin, and finally goes off with Gloomer to a secret enclave. It is easy to mock Swann for sentimentality, for displacement of attention from adult sexuality to innocent relationships between boys and friendly older men, and for his sense that the best contrast to the reductions of history was a clambake of beasts in Arcadia. But the intensity of his sense of belatedness is at times overwhelming'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of Fantasy).
