Illuminants at Troynovant:
counterpoint via sidelong illuminations,
or glances brightening to heat,
usually in reaction to a notable article, etc.
listed by Title Illuminator's instruments

About our overlayered structure for this Troy-town maze of cultural stratigraphy — at Troynovant an entry is a review of book or story, of film or reel or soundie, if largely about a particular title; a glance or counterpoint to an article or curiosity is an illuminant; a folly mines a vein of humor, or if more pointed a satire; a memoir is a firsthand reminiscence; a postcard showcases a flat-carded Scene of Passage; a compilation gathers quotations stoking Trains of Thought; otherwise generally an essay.

When is a Fish also a Sport? S Farrell

[A guard platform at Elsinore Castle, Denmark.]


Last night of all,
When yon same star that's westward from the pole
Had made his course t'illume that part of heaven
Where now it burns, Marcellus and myself,
The bell then beating one —
