Here they are, as far as I can make out:

'Dear Clarice,
I have followed with enthusiasm the course of your disgrace and public shaming. My own never bothered me, except for the inconvenience of being incarcerated, but you may lack perspective.

In our discussions down in the dungeon it was apparent to me that your father, the dead night watchman, figures largely in your value system. I think your success in putting an end to Jame Gumb's career as a couturier pleased you most because you could imagine your father being pleased. But now, alas, you're in bad odour with the FBI. Do you imagine your daddy being shamed by your disgrace? Do you see him in his plain pine box crushed by your failure, the sorry, petty end of a promising career?

What is worst about this humiliation, Clarice? Is it how your failure will reflect on your mommy and daddy? Is your worst fear that people will now and forever believe they were indeed just good old trailer camp, tornado-bait white trash, and that perhaps you are too?

By the way, I couldn't help noticing on the FBI's rather dull public website that I have been hoisted from the bureau's archives of the common criminal, and elevated to the more prestigious Ten Most Wanted List. Is this coincidence, or are you back on the case? If so, goody goody, because I need to come out of retirement and return to public life. Clearly, this new assignment is not your choice. Rather, I suppose it is part of the bargain, but you accepted it, Clarice. Your job is to craft my doom, so I'm not sure how well I should wish you. But I'm sure we'll have a lot of fun.


'Because of his avarice, and his betrayal of the Emperor's trust, Pierre De La Vinia was disgraced, blinded and imprisoned. Dante's pilgrim finds Pierre De La Vinia on the seventh level of The Inferno. Like Judas Iscariot, he died by hanging. But Judas and Pierre De La Vinia are linked in Dante by the avarice he saw in them. In fact hanging and avarice are linked in the medieval mind.

This is the earliest depiction of the Crucifixion, carved on an ivory box in Gaul, about A.D. 400. It includes the death, by hanging, of Judas, his face upturned to the branch that suspends him. Here he is again on the doors of the (sounds like 'Menemethem') cathedral, hanging. This time with his bowels falling out.

Now on this plate from the 15th century edition of The Inferno Pierre De La Vinia's body hangs from a bleeding tree. I will not belabour the obvious parallel with Judas Iscariot, but Dante Allegeri needed no drawn illustration. It is his genius to make Pierre De La Vinia, now in hell, speak in strained hisses and coughing syllables, almost as though he is hanging still.
(Words in Italian which I can't make out)
Avarice, hanging, self destruction.
(More Italian)
I made my own home be my gallows.'

'He woke her then, and trembling and obedient she ate that burning heart out of his hand. Weeping, I saw them then depart from me.

Could he daily feel a stab of hunger for her, and find nourishment in the very side of her? I think so. Would she see through the (sounds like 'bours') of his plight, and ache for him?'
