Example text

While the militarized historical consciousness of modern youth makes war on women, society mostly misses the method in this madness. Sometimes the narrator pursues the paradox of sincerity in fiction by means of Latin allusions. Latin is the narrator's language of choice for expressing his artistic intentions. The allusion in the next stanza is a conflation of two titles from Aquinas, spliced so as to describe precisely the logic of the poem's fantasy: And as she treats all things, and ne'er retreats From anything, this epic will contain A wilderness of the most rare conceits, Which you might elsewhere hope to find in vain.
