I don't know how relevent this may be, but after reading 'Seven Days in New Crete' (Watch the North Wind Rise), and somehow (don't know how) stumbled upon George MacDonald's 'At the Back of the North Wind'. I was struck by the similarities. Ok, there's much about the two books which is different, but I just wanted to know if Robert Graves was aware of this influence, if, indeed, it was an influence at all.

That's an interesting theory Edward.

Personally, I don't think there's any documentary evidence connecting Graves with George Macdonald.

At the Back of the North Wind, or at least a part of it, is online here:
