"Episodic novel, direct sequel to Figures of Earth, a Comedy of Appearances. After manual's death his associated company of knights and wizards disintegrates and each individual member must find his own destiny. In a summary conclusion Jurgen assesses the glittering legacy of the great Redeemer; though his verdict is basically Cervantean, he finds that the sham had some good consequences."
