Giuseppe Arcimboldo's “The Librarian"
Lungrie is profoundly ancient      He cannot
Wearied but restless.                        die.
                                                    Though he
                                                    thirsts for it.
He cannot be, for obvious reasons, the
imbecilic titan that Dante's Lucifer is, nor
so crude as the comic Barbariccia
                                                    Malacoda and
Nor so extravagant in his             his Malebranche
methods or exhortations as Gil-Martin.

Mephistopheles was summoned, so not hugely
relevant.
                                                    False      nofh[sic]
    “Blessed is the mind                 memory      for
    too small for doubt."

                                              dialogic?
    Plasticity of (narrative) voice and of
    grotesques and of annotation.      Push this!
