Abstract: Book Reviews all My first reaction to such a passage is to overpraise in contrast the poised propriety of neo-classicism. There is a wasteful strenuosity in Mr Duncan, which leads to unpleasant imagery (and occasional obscenity):Sucked lozenger of moon spat out. This is not the imagery that permanently pleases. Contrariwise, there are curious, abstract periphrases:If she won't let my abundant blood's superfluity flow through her obvious channels.
