How we cite our quotes:
[...] He emerges
and nervously begins to scale the faces of the buildings. (11-13)
We can't help but to admire how the Man-Moth gets right down to business here. Just diving right in is one way to get over his anxiety.
He trembles, but must investigate as high as he can climb. (16)
Go, Man-Moth, go.
he climbs fearfully, thinking that this time he will manage
to push his small head through that round clean opening
and be forced through, as from a tube, in black scrolls on the light. (19-21)
No wonder he's so ambitious; the end results sound so graceful and magical.
