“A dragon seen from head to foot has no charm. But, if its body is “hidden in the clouds,” if only a “patch of scales” is visible, or only “half its tail” is hanging out, if we cannnot consider it in full, that dragon, both “hidden and manifest” to the point of being “unfathomable” — we no longer know whether it is there or not there, present-absent—is inexhaustibly enthralling.”
