  • The Bloody Chamber
  • There was a dress for her, too; black silk
  • Shot a man-eating tiger with her own hand
    • The dark, leonine shape of his head (about the Marquis)
      • Sometimes he seemed to me like a lily
        • Like one of those cobra-headed, funeral lilies
        • That face... seemed to me like a mask
          • The imponderable weight of his desire was a force I might not withstand
        • He was rich as Croesus
  • Our destination, my destiny
  • Sometimes he seemed to me like a lily
    • Like one of those cobra-headed, funeral lilies
    • That face... seemed to me like a mask
      • The imponderable weight of his desire was a force I might not withstand
    • He was rich as Croesus
  • His wedding gift clasped round my throat. A choker of rubies... Like an extraordinarily precious slit throat
    • I saw how much that cruel necklace became me
      • The flashing crimson jewels round her throat, bright as arterial blood
      • The bloody bandage of rubies
  • He stripped me... as if he were stripping the leaves off an artichoke
  • But the key was still caked with wet blood
    • The bloodstain mocked the fresh water that spilled from the mouth of the leering dolphin
  • Lost, as the victim loses to the executioner
  • The castle is now a school for the blind
