Moreover, the story of Tom Keats's own infatuation with the fictitious "Amena" of the love letters seems to have been in the back of Keats's mind.

Somoza, in his obsession, succumbs to the onrush of "ancestral memories," and gradually abandons his modern identity as he passes into Haghesa's own time.
