From THE MAN WHO WAS THURSDAY, by G. K. Chesterton (1908):
"FOR A LONG TIME the red haired revolutionary [Lucian Gregory] had reigned [in Saffron Park] without a rival; it was upon the night of the [fantastic] sunset that his solitude suddenly ended. The new poet, who introduced himself by the name of Gabriel Syme, was a very mild-looking mortal, with a fair, pointed beard and faint, yellow hair. But an impression grew that he was less meek than he looked. He signalized his entrance by differing with the established poet, Gregory, upon the whole nature of poetry. He said that he (Syme) was a poet of law, a poet of order; nay, he said he was a poet of respectability. So all the Saffron Parkers looked at him as if he had that moment fallen out of that impossible sky. . . ." [continued]
