This scene is lines, 1431-1442 where the most disturbing chaos occurs. During this scene, author Sophocles creates a catharsis so that readers can feel what the characters are feeling in their minds.

Gordon Edmonds and Sally Timms A little too much of something can sometimes be a bad thing. In David Mitchell’s Slade House, the narrator of each chapter is targeted by the Grayer twins because they all seem to be “engifted.” The Grayer twins who are considered carnivores, feed on the souls of those who may be easily manipulated. For example, Gordon Edmonds is a cop, who is your typical heroic police officer but also easily surrenders himself to women for his pleasure.
