In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni
— anonymous Mediaeval Latin palindrome, détourned by Guy
Debord for the title of his 1978 film
The dream which occupies the tortuous mind of every palindromist is that somewhere within the confines of the language lurks the Great Palindrome, a nutshell which not only fulfils the intricate demands of the art, flowing sweetly in both directions, but which also contains the Final Truth of Things.
