The regions of absolute vice are foul and odious
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
- "The regions of absolute vice are foul and odious. The savour of them, till custom has hardened the palate and the nose, is disgusting. In these [the novelist] will hardly tread. But there are outskirts on these regions on which sweet-smelling flowers seem to grow, and grass to be green. It is in these border-lands the danger lies." --Trollope on literary realism literary naturalism in An Autobiography - Page 185.
