The use of the word “fulfilled” is notable as are all of the other words beginning with or featuring prominent L-sounds. “Fulfilled” is but one example (kindled, yielded, lavishlimbed, liquid, life, and of course the aforementioned languor to name a few) of this L-centric consonance, but how does it function other than providing this section with an air of the poetic? Its notable that many of Steven's previously mentioned pleasures include ladies and language, additionally we have to decide what this passage actually reads as. In Steven's mind its a turning point he has become an artist, an amateur one, but still an artist, and he has found himself a muse. However, following the narrative I've created through the previous annotations, this passage is very much concerned with love, or more honestly, lust.
