  • Circling and circling, it seemed to scorn all pause.
    So it ran on, and still behind it pressed

    a never-ending rout of souls in pain
    I had not thought death had undone so many
    as passed before me in that mournful train.
    -Dante's Inferno, Canto III: The Gate of Hell (Ciardi translation)

    Unreal City
    Under the brown fog of a winter dawn,
    A crowd flowed over London Bridge, so many,
    I had not thought death had undone so many.
    -T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land
