A Map of Verona
"I give up -- what is polyphiloprogenitive?"-- from a reader
"Polyphiloprogenitive": prolific of offspring. Used by Matthew Arnold in "Culture and Anarchy" but most celebratedly -- very celebratedly -- by the well-known son of a St. Lous furrier, Mr. T. S. Eliot, as the first line of his poem "Mr. Eliot's Sunday Morning Service." Henry Reed, the English poet, author of the famous English school recital-piece "Lessons of the War" ("Today we had Naming of Parts"), parodied this early Eliot poem in "Chard Whitlow." The Naming-of-Parts (of a rifle by World War II conscripts) poem, the parodic "Chard Whitlow," and Reed's other verse, can be found collected in "A Map of Verona" (Reynal and Hitchcock, 1947 is the first American edition).
But why did you "give up"? You can find every conceivable dictionary on-line, and merely by googling the word you can find out much of what you might need or desire. But if what you need or desire turns out to be my first, London imprint (1946) edition of "A Map of Verona," I won't oblige. That I'm keeping.
