The excerpt represents the core issue or deciding factor on which you must meditate, and is drawn from Thuvia, Maid of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs:|
They saw utan after utan march from the gate in perfect
step to reinforce the outnumbered company which Tario
had first sent forth to arrest them.

the struggling bowmen that surged to and fro, filling the
broad field between the forest and the city.
The wood loomed close behind Thuvia and Carthoris.
The latter cast a glance toward Jav.
