    Considered by critics to be Barth's most distinguished novel, The Sot-Weed Factor has acquired the status of a modern classic. Set in the late 1600s, it recounts the chaotic odyssey of the hapless, ungainly Ebeneezer Cooke. Cooke is sent to the New World to oversee his father's tobacco business and to record the struggles of the Maryland colony in an epic poem. On his mission, he is captured by pirates and Indians; loses his father's estate to roguish impostors; falls in love with a former prostitute; and meets a gallery of treacherous characters who continually switch identities.

    Janice says: "An adventure full of bawdy humour, wit and wonder"
    "too much blathering"

    Story

    The story line was decent but there was way too much philosophizing or attempts at clever language use by the author. I found myself fast forwarding again and again to get past these parts.
