This week's Final Word comes from a 20th-century writer interested in a degree of sexual latitude:
"Human beings make a strange fauna and flora. From a distance they appear negligible; close up they are apt to appear ugly and malicious. More than anything they need to be surrounded with sufficient space -space even more than time. The sun is setting. I feel this river flowing through me - its past, its ancient soil, the changing climate. The hills gently girdle it about: its course is fixed."
The winner of last week's competition, who identified Thorstein Veblen's, The Theory of the Leisure Class , is Philip R. Bellamy of Plymouth, Devon.
