¶ Prehistoric. "A pseudo-historical romance of the caveman, this narrative has as its focus the spiritual awareness of man; specifically, after the death of his mate, the caveman 'sees' her in the forest and realizes the fact of eternal life rather than 'dissolution - decay - dust - nothing.'" - Anatomy of Wonder (1976).
