Publisher's Summary

A Landmark Fantasy Adventure

Inspired by the legends of the Dark Ages, The Phoenix and the Mirror is the story of the mighty Vergil - not quite the Vergil of our history books (the poet who penned The Aeneid), but the Vergil conjured by the medieval imagination: hero, alchemist, and sorcerer extroaordinaire. Hugo Award winner Avram Davidson has mingled fact with fantasy, turned history askew, and come up with a powerful fantasy adventure that is an acknowledged classic of the field.

"classic" = old fashioned

It's a product of its time: slow, stilted, and sexist. I wanted to like it because of its place in the canon, but no. Not for me.
