"Jurgen is a pawnbroker caught between romantic and cynical world views: a would be poet...after gaining his reckless wish to be rid of a nagging wife, he finds himself the poorer for it, and sets out to make good his loss. His quest ranges through various scenarios borrowed from history, myth and fiction involving many allegorical figures." BARRON 3-67.
