Quandary Resolution 1940
axilla, fetch, hobgoblin, chicanery
The shrouded, doom-laden Celtic Twilight of Yeats & Co. was tenanted by keening offstage apparitions - fetches, wraiths, and other hobgoblins of the peat bogs - who when not thus moonlighting might be encountered up to their axillae in sandwich-boards deploying every thespian chicanery to lure honest working folk from the safety of their inglenooks into the clutches of a crepuscular box-office.
