Example text

In the morning I found that the book was called ' Speculum Angelorum et Hominorum,' had been written by Giraldus and printed at Cracow in 1594, a good many years before the celebrated Cracow publications, and was of a very much earlier style both as to woodcut and type. It was very dilapidated and all the middle pages had been torn out; but at the end of the book were a number of curious allegorical pictures; a woman with a stone in one hand and an arrow in the other; a man whipping his shadow; a man being torn in two by an eagle and some kind of wild beast; and so on to the number of eight and twenty; a portrait of Giraldus and b 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 a unicorn; and many diagrams where gyres and circles grew out of one another like strange vegetables; and there was a large diagram at the beginning where lunar phases and zodiacal signs were mixed with various unintelligible symbols—an apple, an acorn, a cup.

The thirteenth moon but sets the soul at war In its own being, and when that war's begun There is no muscle in the arm; and after Under the frenzy of the fourteenth moon The soul begins to tremble into stillness, To die into the labyrinth of itself! 10 AHERNE Sing out the song; sing to the end, and sing The strange reward of all that discipline. ROBARTES All thought becomes an image and the soul Becomes a body : that body and that soul Too perfect at the full to lie in a cradle, Too lonely for the traffic of the world : Body and soul cast out and cast away Beyond the visible world.

The being of Antithetical Man is described as full of rage before Phase 12, against all in the world that hinders its expression, but after Phase 12 the rage is a knife turned against itself. After Phase 15, but before Phase 19, the being 25 is full of phantasy, a continual escape from, and yet acknowledgment of all that allures in the world, a continual playing with all that must engulf it. The primary is that which serves, the antithetical is that which creates. 30 At Phase 8 is the " Discovery of Strength," an embodiment in sensuality, for the imitation that held it to the norm of the race has ceased and the personality with its own norm has not begun.
