Eddison, E. (n.d.). The Worm Ouroboros. Retrieved from

Excerpt: THE Induction THERE was a man named Lessingham dwelt in an old low house in Wastdale, set in a gray old garden where yew?trees flourished that had seen Vikings in Copeland in their seedling tune. Lily and rose and larkspur bloomed in the borders, and begonias with blossoms big as saucers, red and white and pink and lemon?colour, in the beds before the porch. Climbing roses, honeysuckle, clematis, and the scarlet flame?flower scrambled up the walls. Thick woods were on every side without the garden, with a gap north?eastward opening on the desolate lake and the great fells beyond it: Gable rearing his crag?bound head against the sky from behind the straight clean outline of the Screes.
