Re: Henderson and the Rain King, Bellow’s Masterstroke

After Henderson moved the great stone goddess of storms, King Dahfu took him into the debths to meet the dark secret lioness, not Dahfu’s father. As Henderson stood in the room, the symbol was real for him and real for me; this was not a symbolic lion, but a real lion, and the real lion is death, the all destroying world, that pads past you in the room.
