    Summary

    Damianos is being sent to the prince of Kumat, who will take him as a husband; this is among the terms of the treaty that will end the war at last. Unless, presumably, he displeases the prince and is executed, which seems to him as though it is all too likely. But perhaps they will only dislike each other a little. Perhaps the prince will find Damianos's looks to his taste, and be willing to fuck Damianos at least the necessary once. That would not be so bad.

    It is too improbable to be worth contemplating, that perhaps they will each please the other very much indeed, and like each other, and be happy. Far, far too improbable. And even if by some chance it were so—too many dangers would yet remain for it to have any hope of lasting.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    GOD what a tale! what a sweeping romance! the repression and the conflict and the satisfying, difficult resolution of it all!!!
    FIRSTLY: this is a Dynamic. St. John decides to flee Calcutta because he's never had An Emotion and Marcus will Perish If Coitus Is Withheld
    Secondly: "St. John shifted until he was leaning over Cpt. Aquilaine; the faintest hints of dawn were beginning to break outside their window and he could see the Captain's face smiling up at him, all lines and shadows in the morning light. So much love, and so short a lifetime in which to express it. Still, knowing he was destined to fail in that expression did not absolve him from making the attempt." THAT'S CHARACTER GROWTH, BABEY!!! That's the good, storytelling shit.....
    Thirdly: apart from the hot sex & the smart, funny (I can't count the number of times I laughed in delight at a turn-of-phrase or witticism), page-turning, WISH-FULFILLING narrative, this is meaty historical fiction with plenty of compassionate commentary on religion, colonialism, racism, colorism, casteism (as an Indian, these were all so necessary & so appreciated), conservatism, homophobia, patriarchy.....I feel kinder & tenderer for having read it, and I'm sure I'll be revisiting this story many more times in the years to come.
