THE Chair she sat in, like a burnished throne, Glowed on the marble, where the glass Held up by standards wrought with fruited vines From which a golden Cupidon peeped out 80(Another hid his eyes behind his wing) Doubled the flames of sevenbranched candelabra Reflecting light upon the table as The glitter of her jewels rose to meet it, From satin cases poured in rich profusion; 85In vials of ivory and coloured glass Unstoppered, lurked her strange synthetic perfumes, Unguent, powdered, or liquid—troubled, confused And drowned the sense in odours; stirred by the air That freshened from the window, these ascended 90In fattening the prolonged candle-flames, Flung their smoke into the laquearia, Stirring the pattern on the coffered ceiling.T.S. Eliot, The Waste Landtaken from Virgil Aeneid, I, 726

As seen in Ezra Pound's "Hugh Selwyn Mauberley""I never mentioned a man but with the view"Of selling my own works."The tip's a good one, as for literature"It gives no man a sinecure."And no one knows, at sight a masterpiece.And give up verse, my boy,There's nothing in it."
