More thoughts on Oreb would be of great interest. And more thoughts on 
_why_ so many heroes are lame (see also everything Tim Powers ever 
wrote)--I know there is a body of theory regarding this, and for the 
moment cannot properly nail it down in my head. What kind of boy or dwarf 
is Oreb on Green? Nutria's Christian typology is of course one line; but I 
think Nutria himself assumes this to be only one pattern of meaning, 
though maybe the central.
        Much of this material may have already been exposed here. Sorry if 
I'm disinterring a dead crow.
