"The second Mrs Hardy might have known what was coming from the manner of Hardy's proposal. He had taken her to the churchyard to show her the grave of wife No. 1, and, pointing to another vacant plot, he said, 'That's for you.' By this, she took it that he was proposing. Before they're anything else, if they're any good at all, most writers are absurd."

--Alan Bennett, Six Poets: Hardy to Larkin

Heh. This gives a new meaning to "Ah, are you digging on my grave?"
