"She was born to be the adored of poets, since poets require safety, someone who sits sewing, who says, 'I hate, I love,' who is neither comfortable nor prosperous, but has some quality in accordance with the high but unemphatic beauty of pure style which those who create poetry so particularly admire."
In Arabian folklore, a ghoul (ghūl) is a desert-dwelling demon that can assume the guise of an animal, usually a hyena. It is an evil spirit that robs graves and feeds on the flesh of the dead or on young children. They inhabit lonely places, especially graveyards. They also lure travelers into the desert, beguiling their victims with their beautiful singing and then devouring them.
