This review of M I Finley’s A World of Odysseus , discusses the hypothesis that oral heroic poetry is not a medium that preserves historical fact, mentioning specifically how the deeds of Paddy, “Billy” Moss, and the others who kidnapped General Kreipe were raised to the level of Cretan heroic oral history, but by 1953, all the names had been forgotten or deliberately erased (the relevant part is highlighted for your convenience).

The revelation of the Mycenaean archives fostered wild hopes that one day we might come across, let us say, the muster of ships at Aulis for the expedition against Troy or an operation order for the attack of the Seven against Thebes.1

The tablets also demonstrated that the precise geographical description of Nestor’s kingdom at Pylos which is offered in Book II of the Iliad bears practically no relation to the Mycenaean facts; the conclusion, that the poet or poets knew little or nothing of western Greece, might already have been surmised from the confused and confusing Homeric descriptions of the hero’s homeland, Ithaca. And meanwhile, quite apart from the tablets, it was becoming steadily clearer to all but the most stubborn that there was very little in the archaeological record which would serve to connect the world of the poems with the Bronze Age.

This is a modern adaptation of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare . The plot remains that of Shakespeare, though somewhat amputated: Demetrius and Lysander both want Hermia. She loves Lysander, but her father prefers Demetrius. Helena, meanwhile, adores Demetrius. The young lovers escape to the forest, where Oberon and Titania (King and Queen of the Fairies) are quarreling. Oberon's mischief-maker, Puck, runs loose with a flower which causes people to fall in love with the first thing they see upon waking; wacky hijinks ensue.

When Goliath and company return to Avalon , the faerie lord Oberon and his queen Titania return as well after a millennium-long exile. Trouble ensues when Oberon decides to evict the Avalon Clan from his island.
