Quandary Resolution 1763
deify, uraeus, caravansary, imago
The imago of her father, who had died before Jacqueline reached the age of seven, snaked itself around every aspect of her adult life, much like a uraeus coiled at the base of a pharaoh’s crown, comforting her as the sight of a caravansary quells the apprehension of a weary nomad; in deifying him in this way she made it all but impossible for anyone to be worthy of her love and was thus still a lonely spinster at seventy-three.
