The giant’s face was without doubt identical to the portrait that Pieter Van Dyke had made of Samuel Taylor Coleridge in 1795. An enormous scythe was rushing through the air, and before it reached the first outskirts of the narcissus field to mow it down mercilessly, I fled from my lookout, not without seizing the opportunity to inspect the sign. ‘Daffodils’, it read, in a childish handwriting, ‘made by William Wordsworth’.

(Wilfried Steiner. Der Weg nach Xanadu)
