justify it as a procedure in my creation to the later quantity
and write my Epilogue to emphasize this team spirit of technique
and to make transparent its program to every one of the works or
authors I deal with. actually, possibly to stress the conformity of
this moment quantity to the strategy of the first, I summarize
retrospectively (pp. 19-21 of The vintage imaginative and prescient) the grasp-
metaphors of the works handled in The Tragic imaginative and prescient. although
I am confident that my summaries emerged out of these
earlier analyses, they have been now not as transparent to me initially as they
came to be as soon as my approach crystallized with the writing of
The vintage Vision.
