Pansies



When Kraepelin first described Involutional Melancholia he must have been thinking of a person like Elmer P. Cragwin. Professor Cragwin's early glittering brilliance (as shown in works such as 'Des pensées sur les pensées futures') was in later years dulled by his deeply sceptical 'Critique of Core Treason' in which he rounded upon his contemporaries with paranoid ferocity. The most cutting attack was directed towards the work of Professor Letitia Vorsfeld who subsequently was elevated to the post of Président Adjoint Littéraire of the Transpyrranean Society, and thus the real power behind the ultimate dismantling of Cragwin's academic reputation.
