      I agree with Garman Lord, who said James shows Lokasenna to be "the psychological tale of the progressive deterioration of a sociopathic, perhaps psychopathic personality, from mere heavenly mischief-maker to deicide bound down on a rock for the crime of conspiring to destroy the cosmos for the gratification of his own sick monster ego". (Garman Lord in Theod magazine, volume 14 number 3, 1997.)

      Certainly an interesting work, but some of the conclusions seem to have come more from religious fervour than solid deduction.
