Patera Nutria,
        Have just joined WHORL, and don't know etiquette within this 
august Theatre, but thought I'd tie this to yours on Silk to indicate my 
intuition that you are probably (though, as you say) not absolutely 
certainly right. That fasting is what Silk does escaped my memory, 
certainly, when I was laying down a first _reading_ response to 
_In Green's Jungles_ . 
        But to make it absolutely clear what _I_ was doing: no revelations 
were being hoicked into view, certainly not at this stage: I was laying 
down for readers far more general than WHORL's List some sense of the 
pattern of the book: it was, implicitly, an invocation to read out in the 
        Oreb as Holy Spirit. Very fine. Especially if the bird, in human 
terms, could be defined as a giant paraclete.
