1. Demon; goblin.
[From Spanish dialectal duende (charm), from Spanish (ghost).]
"A key part of the myth of authenticity is duende, the spirit that
inhabits the soloist at the climax of a performance."
"'If I don't get up here and paint, if I don't get up here and work on
some kind of sculpture, I don't feel that I'm living. The duende says,
'Come on: Do it! Do it! Do it!'"
Every increased possession loads us with new weariness. -John Ruskin, author, art critic, and social reformer (1819-1900)
