Analysis

(3) Base Camp

The language is simple and conversational, but allusions to mythological beings and some coy innuendo keep you digging beneath the surface. Plus, although it's a straightforward narrative (get out of bed, Corinna), this message is also freighted with a lot of philosophical baggage about religion, community, and the best way to live a life. Knowing a wee bit of British history should go a long way.
