  • 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; 85
    In 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 90
    In fattening the prolonged candle-flames,
    Flung their smoke into the laquearia,
    Stirring the pattern on the coffered ceiling.

    T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land

    taken 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."
