With the knowledge and style of a person who attends bull fights regularly, Clifford (1861: 15) skillfully describes with precise detail the entrance of the "glittering cavalcade of fine manly looking actors [...] sufficient to quicken the most sluggish pulse." He then goes on to describe the "picturesque dresses of all the colours of the rainbow, glittering with silver and gold and the many coloured silk cloaks" and shows his knowledge of bullfighting terminology, using words such as; espadas, chulos, banderilleros, the toril gate, the picadores, as he describes in detail the different stages of the bullfight and its rituals and traditions.
