"0f JURGEN eke they maken mencioun,
That of an old wyf gat his youthe agoon,
And gat himselfe a shirte as bright as fyre
Wherein to jape, yet gat not his desire
In any countrie ne condicioun."

Worth buying in book form, especially. This is as beauiful and strange a story as any you will ever read. Now i'm going to just step outside for a while. I may be some time, as Captain Oates once said in a tent somewhere a long time ago. I need solitude.
