I would dissent from mr. Larson's view that Walker is speaking through 
Lancelot, a mistake that even learned critics have been making for years. this 
awlays puzzled Walker after the publication of the book with the same puzzzlement 
Socrtes must have felt as they passed him the hemlock.

"Don't folks know irony when they see it?" opined WP. I would remeark that 
the reasson for the mistake is that there is something so appealing in the Lance 
character that put s the reader on his side despite his nihilism in the 
latter passages of the book.

Walker was by my personal observation of him, much taken with the Vatican II 
changes at a time when lots of RCs in Covington were not. I  mean to check 
these observations with others and supplement this hereafter.
