Gustave Dore: Satan in Pain
Then Satan first knew pain,
And writh'd him to and fro convolv'd; so sore
The girding sword with discontinuous wound
Passed through him.

(Paradise Lost, VI.327-330)

Now the rainman gave me two cures,
Then he said, "Jump right in."
The one was Texas medicine,
The other was just railroad gin.
And like a fool I mixed them
And it strangled up my mind,
And now people just get uglier
And I have no sense of time.

         Bob Dylan, "Stuck Inside of Mobile"

                  . . . I mean to speak
                  Of that interminable building reared
                  By observation of affinities
                  In objects where no brotherhood exists
                  To common minds.

                            William Wordsworth, The Prelude II.401-405
