REVIEW: “His Soul” by Cathrin Hagey

Review of Cathrin Hagey, “His Soul,” Luna Station Quarterly 23 (2015): Read online. Reviewed by Sara L. Uckelman.

There are a lot of lovely fairy tale elements in this story, as well as echoes of the myth of Narcissus, but also a lot of patriarchal stereotyping with an underlying misogyny.

I would love to have been able to enjoy this story, but it just failed to push the boundaries in the way it maybe could have.
