          "Several times it decayed, then burgeoned again, always keeping the first Clarice as an unparalleled model of every splendor…a sumptuous butterfly-Clarice emerged from the beggared chrysalis-Clarice.[…] No-one had any connection with the former Clarice, or Clarices…The shards of the original splendor had been saved, preserved under glass bells, locked in display cases, set on velvet cushions, and not because they might still be used for anything, but because people wanted to reconstruct through them a city of which no one knew anything now."
