Greetings all – although I am not addressed specifically in your response here, Jean, I simply wanted to mention that while I respect you only read the foreword to Helena’s book on Tricksters in which she mentioned her personal biography, you misrepresent the breadth of the book which is based on her researches in this country where she has been based for many, many years. So her perceptions are not blinkered by a past elsewhere – in some ways, it’s the unique perspective that an insider aware of parameters of a culture that does not know its own limitations that is so compelling – it’s full of stories and down-to-earth comment. I hope you will get a chance to read further. Her analysis of systems in capitalist worlds is thoughtful, and the participation of the trickster personality well presented.
as ever, Leslie Gardner
