Snipping one line out of a fascinating set of notes,

>but still, what does "I am your mother, and your mother's mother" mean?!

It seems to me that if Wolfe is going to play around with Graves's concepts
and imagery _anywhere_ it would be in a story about ancient Greece, neh?
... perhaps this is an invocation/citation/statement of the all-female, the 
three Goddess ... in which case the Sphinx being Echidna's daughter doesn't
prevent her from being Hera's, since both Hera and Echidna are the Mother
... I think it's time for me to reread these; it's going to be a bit of a 
wait for
Wizard-Knight anyway.
