¶ Allegorical fantasy. Young Art and Old Hector fall into a pool and drown. They awaken in the Green Isle of the Great Deep, or the Celtic land of the Dead. A "mystico-political semi-allegory", according to Bleiler in THE GUIDE TO SUPERNATURAL FICTION (1983), who likens it to Joseph O'Neill's "LAND UNDER ENGLAND" (1935).
