OK, granted, it’s partly about how the narrator comes to realize he’s fucked up about foeles, but pages of desperate desire for the female muse alternating with enraged desire to whip literally and crush metaphorically various of the women involved in the narrator’s ‘education’, followed by 50 pages of “oh I must try and do better” No matter what the reasons would be that The Magus is a book that is entirely mind-blowing.
