Quandary Resolution 5650
leitmotif, yana, golden handcuffs, bovarism

"Shackled in the golden handcuffs of Le Mélomane d'autrefois, the superannuated journal that has hosted his fatuous reviews for more than half a century, Pilkington-Sproat was wrenched from his ataractic state of conventionalist yana by the magnificent didgeridoo leitmotif of Caprimulgius' The Discombobulation of Cerberus and revealed in all his spluttering bovarism," wrote Gavin Ponsonby in his riposte to the reactionary music critic.
