Strana 174 - AI bine no longer spoke of them as children at play, and Serge ventured on none of his former hypotheses. Chatto and Windus, 1900. p. 174. They began to laugh, but there was a nervous ring about their merriment as they glanced at the nude and frisking cupids which started to life again on all the panels. They no longer took those survivals of voluptuous eighteenth century art to represent mere children at play. Henry Vizetelly, 1886. pp. 213-14. The voices were growing more distinct and articulate....
Strana 37 - If you live all alone you get to see things queerly . . . The trees are no longer trees, the earth puts on the ways of a living being, the stones seem to tell you tales.
