…looking again in the old books, I find so much pleasure in the authority of [Cormac McCarthy’s] voice, and the wisdom that flames out from his pages, and it is painful to imagine that such a fire has been extinguished.

From Ed Caesar’s tribute to Cormac McCarthy, following the author’s death in June 2023.

Notice the coordination of flames, fire, and extinguished. Also notice that each of the images must work by itself so that their coordination does not devolve into a cheesy theme.
