… And as an evening dragon came, / Assailant on the perched roosts / And nests in order ranged / Of tame villatic fowl … John Milton, Samson Agonistes, 1671
In rural communities of the cotton country where his business now for the first time took him, wearing urban-cut imitation tweed in contrast to the villatic duck and seersucker of the men with whom we dealt, Drew stood out--like the oldtime professional gamblers in their flowing broadcloth and tall hats, their sideburns and heavy watch chains, their aura of Chance--with an emphasized smartness which the men might view askance but which their women were apt to call romantic. Shelby Foote, Love in a Dry Season, 1951
