And I ask, are you referring to the Robert Parker who writes novels
about Spenser and Hawk, among others? Parker has a Ph.D. in English
(specifically American literature), and his thesis is on the development
of the American hero. If this is indeed the Parker to whom you refer,
could you explain the "different [from what?] ordering of all the
senses"?  How does that apply to Parker?

I seem to recall that Shakespeare's father was at one point fined for
failing to clean up a dungheap near his property, perhaps in a street.
Would the offense have been the odor itself or the obstruction of the
thoroughfare?  Probably both, but likely more the latter than the former.
