“There is always a strong sense of performance within tales, the sense that they exist, somehow, only in their telling and this is something of which Huyghe is undoubtedly aware. ... Like Poe, Huyghe is able to present a certain degree of closure while allowing an immense and productive openness at its center, like a traveler into the unknown, prepared and yet desiring the unexpected.” Jeremy Millar Parkett No. 66, 2002
