This week's Final Word comes from comparatively literate polymath:
"Then a group leader leapt from the ranks and performed a kind of violent, intricate dance. He was acting out in pantomime the struggle against imperialist bandits and their defeat by the peasant armies. The ceremony closed with a recital of the heroic death of one of the founders of the local Communist Party. He had been killed by the Japanese and was buried near by. Is it not, I wonder, in some comparable rite of defiance and honour to the dead that tragedy began three thousand years ago, on the plains of Argos?"
The winner of last week's competition, who identified The Upanishads translated by Juan Mascar", was Tony Tucker of the University of Central Lancashire.
