In regards to Cormac McCarthy, Outer Dark, “It howled execrations upon the dim camarine world of its nativity wail on wail while he lay there gibbering with palsied jawhasps, his hands putting back the night like some witless paraclete beleaguered with all limbo’s clamor.” Camarine means filthy/fecal/abominable and so on, and putting back the night with hands is done by covering your eyes such as doing so to make the current world go away and put the world back to its pre-state such as might be done by a witless paralete (intercessor), and if you observe people with Parkinson’s/Cerebral Palsey/or similar their mouths slightly open and close like palsied jawhasps such as bouncing jaws on their hinges.
