Cather relates the story of a family in Des Moines who became devout converts to Christian Science—and whose two small children died as a result of Christian Science "treatment" (that is to say nontreatment) when they became ill. Brown only briefly mentions Cather's boyish attire and connects it with her other forms of rebellion against what he names "the conventionalism of Red Cloud. .. a network of caution, evasion and negation" (47).

In the world called Inamorata, there are many nations who has their own religion, technology and army. It is no accident that because Kingdom of Heaven was made after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001, the film depicts violence done in the name of religion as the ultimate evil. It is told in diary form by Jane Austen�s cousin and offers a sideways glimpse into the imagined world of Austen as a teenager. Here in this barbarism of reflection, aided by civil bureaucracy, deceitful language, and cunning reason, our passions are unrestrained by the manners and customs prominent in the Ages of Gods or Heroes to the point that civil society collapses upon itself before returning to a second cycle of history.

What is also interesting is the word-play in the quote attributed to Augustus- “pig” and “son” are similar sounding words in Greek. Cather would go on to find connectedness, to discover a way of bringing the muses of poetry and epic into her empty land, but she would also remain keenly aware of the pains of disconnectedness and of the dangers of half-buried memories and sudden dislocations. There are no "English" characters in Beowulf, and English scholars and authors had no knowledge of the poem before it was discovered and edited in the nineteenth century.

The Sword with No Name trilogy by Andrei Belyanin has a modern-day man transported by unknown means to such a setting, full of deliberate anachronisms. And the names are equally as improbable for that era (or at all in some cases). Hollywood Blacklist by Dan Georgakas in Buhle, Buhle, and Georgakas, ed., Encyclopedia of the American Left Urbana and Chicago: University of Illinois Press, 1992.
