Lead in Literature
The French Lieutenants Woman
by John Fowles
First published in Great Britain 1969 by Jonathon Cape Ltd
"And then the colour of those walls! They cried out for some light shade, for white. Instead they were a bilious leaden green - one that was, unknown to the occupants (and to be fair, to the tyrant upstairs), rich in arsenic."
Famous Last Words
When St Boniface was martyred in 755 AD, `As hot lead was poured into his mouth he said "I thank Thee Lord Jesus, Son of the Living God".'
The Horse Whisperer
by Nicholas Evans
Originally published in Great Britain by Bantam Press 1995
"Some of those guys - not Rarey, he was a real horseman - but some of the others, they did things that looked like magic but were just downright cruel. You know, things like pouring lead shot in a horses ear, so the sound of it would paralyze him with fear and people would say wow, look, hes tamed that crazy horse! What they didnt know was that hed probably killed it too."
