Andrew Staniland's prose-poem novel “The Beauty Of Psyche (2005)” is a retelling of the Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche as a novel about imagination. The characters are played by actors,... More > against a backdrop of paintings, models and sets. The story at times becomes a series of paintings and sculptures in an exhibition. And many of the references to people, films, theatre and other myths may or may not be imaginary too.

It is not a modern version of a classic, it is a modern classic... It’s a genuine literary work of art. A true contemporary classic. It’s beautiful, it’s intelligent and I don’t imagine I’ll ever read anything like it again.” — Cally Phillips, indie e-book review< Less
