An actual paragraph by Cyril Connolly

Ancestor, my old incarnation, O Palinurus Vulgaris, the Venetian red crawfish, langouste, or rock-lobster, whether feeding on the spumy Mauretanian Banks, or undulating– southward to Teneriffe, northward to Sicily– in the systole and diastole of the wave: free me from guilt and fear, free me from guilt and fear, dapple-plated scavenger of the resounding sea!

from The Unquiet Grave
