Also at the LRB, James Davidson (no relation--though my Scottish grandfather would have found a way to lay genealogical claim to him, as he was convinced that any distinguished Davidson must be a branch of our family!) on myths of Atlantis. A nice example of a literary-critical essay with the richness and complexity of a fiction by Jorge Luis Borges--I believe I have a copy of Davidson's Courtesans and Fishcakes lying around somewhere, I should dig it out and give it a look....
