scarcity, of detail


as delivered
The New York Times (29 September 2013) : 6

How many an afternoon Ántonia and I have trailed along the prairie under that magnificence! And always two long black shadows flitted before us or followed after, dark spots on the ruddy grass.

It must have been the scarcity of detail in that tawny landscape that made detail so precious.

ex Willa Cather. My Ántonia (1918)
