  1. Hahaha, I just noticed the use of “fine-and-private” as if it’s a well-known poetic turn of phrase. A Claremontism if ever there was!

    (research reveals that “The grave’s a fine and private place” appears in Andrew Marvell’s poem To His Coy Mistress, and “A Fine and Private Place” is the title of a Peter S. Beagle novel. I love how Claremont manages to remember the phrasing but mangle the context.)
