Weird question regarding: The Almomd Tree - Walter de la Mare.

Recommended Posts

I just listened to an abridged version of this on bbc sounds (an app so shockingly bad you can’t link to it, but that’s besides the point). 

 

Anyway. It was very good, moody, interesting...  but, I don’t understand the twist. I don’t know if my brain isn’t on because it’s late or something is missing or taken for granted in how it’s been abridged. 

 

Anyone shed some light for me? 

 

Was it the counts brother?  The narrator was relaying the counts experience wasn’t he?  The start and end seem unnecessary complicated.

I read it after seeing this post. As far as I can tell the only twist is that his mum was pregnant while his dad was having an affair. Don't know what else to make of it and the internet is no help.

Thats what I thought, but it was sold on radio 4 as a “ghost story” which made me think I was missing something.
