The Powerless Heads of the Dead

“Once more John began (or was it his dizziness returning upon him?) to feel as if all those upturned faces were thousands and thousands of ghosts, all the nekuōn ameneena kareena, ‘the powerless heads of the dead,’ of the long Glastonbury history, ligothiclight12stening to Mr. Geard.”
–from ‘The Glastonbury Romance’ (1933) by John Cowper Powys.
