DROMENON

was far greater than any archaeological expedition I have ever taken. I never paid a visit to any-shrine (yes, I use the hackneyed word advisedly, precisely) which gave me any experience approaching what I found in that worn hull of stone. Why, then, have I not revisited it? It is partly to explain that fact that I have written this. For the questioner is right if he supposes that I did find there the final clue to my studies, and, more, far more-a solution, I believe, to the whole psychological mystery of Gothic.
As those will know who have followed my Further Studies in the Lancet Style, I had come to the conclusion that we should never understand the inner significance and germinal urge of that architectural form by looking at the elevations. Interesting though they may be in themselves, they are (as I believe I have shown in my last essay, and this I take to be my chief discovery) only symptoms, resultants from the plan. I can say I knew that "Gothic" is simply the marking out and covering over of certain paths, certain, as a Greek would say, dromena-ways of rhythm. In the sanctuary, there is the intense nuclear pattern; around it, in the ambulatory and the great processional aisles, is the outer wave of more evident movement. I knew that, and yet I really knew about it only as a man who discovered a fossilized white anthill might make a map of it and think he could, from that, understand the termite instincts.
I arrived at St. Aidans on an autumn day. The journey is a tiring one-cross-country-with long junction waits, and the small town is the single line's terminus.
