CHAPTER XVIII - Auto da Fe

setting in? If I marry a Spanish woman or a dark Mexican, she will give herself up to me to be ravished. If I marry a woman of the Anglo-Saxon or any blonde northern stock, she will want to ravish me, with the will of all the ancient white demons. Those that want to be ravished are parasites on the soul, and one has revulsions. Those that want to ravish a man are vampires. And between the two, there is nothing.'
`Surely there are some really good women?'
'Well, show me them. They are all potential Carlotas or - or - yes, Caterinas. I am sure you ravished your Joachim till he died. No doubt he wanted it; even more than you wanted it. It is not just sex. It lies in the will. Victims and victimizers. The upper classes, craving to be victims to the lower classes; or else craving to make victims of the lower classes. The politicians, craving to make one people victims to another. The Church, with its evil will for turning the people into humble, writhing things that shall crave to be victimized, to be ravished - I tell you, the earth is a place of shame.'
`But if you want to be different,' said Kate, `surely a few other people do - really.'
`It may be,' he said, becoming calm. `It may be. I wish I kept myself together better. I must keep myself together, keep myself within the middle place, where I am still. My Morning Star. Now I am ashamed of having talked like this to you, Sefiora Caterina.'
`Why?' she cried. And for the first time, the flush of hurt and humiliation came into her face.
He saw it at once, and put his hand on hers for a moment.
`No,' he said. `I am not ashamed. I am relieved.'
She flushed deeply at his touch, and was silent. He rose hastily, to leave, craving to be alone again with his own soul.
'On Sunday,' he said, `will you come into the plaZa, in the morning, when the drum sounds? Will you come?'
`What for?' she said.
`Well! Come, and you will see.'
He was gone in a flash.
There were many soldiers in the village. When she went to the post-office she saw the men in their cotton uniforms lying about in the entrance to the military station. There must have been fifty or more little men, not the tall soldiers in slouched
