Re: nature in ada (fwd)
From: Juan Martinez <pigbodine@hotmail.com>

There is also Van Veen's self-authored plug for _ADA_ (if it's been
mentioned before, I do apologize---free e-mail has its glitches) which
is made somewhere near the beginning or near the end, and says something
about the reader finding therein "gardens, pools, lakes" something,
something... I'll find the quote tonight when I get home, but it does
point out that our peripatetic partial narrator was very much aware of
the link between nature and events in his story.
