Seven Days in New Crete | [Robert Graves]

Seven Days in New Crete

Edward Venn-Thomas lives in the 20th century but has been mysteriously transported to the future, and the apparently idyllic society of New Create, where there is no hunger, no war, and no dissatisfaction. However Venn-Thomas is starting to find life among the New Cretans rather dull. He comes to realise that their perfect existence, inspired by the poets and magicians of their strange occult religion, lacks one fundamental thing: evil. So Venn-Thomas sees it as nothing less than his duty to introduce them to the darker side of life.
