Clive Barkers' Book of Blood question..

I'm currently reading this and was wondering if someone could enlighten me on what the final few lines of the story "In the Hills the City" , mean?

What does Barker mean when he says ..."Judd gave birth".. for example.

And the line "He interupted neither with his name"?

Thanks

Only a few months late ...

I finished this story recently and have a possible answer.

"Judd gave birth" - I think this refers to his body decaying and maggots falling out of him, new life from within his body. I think young fox pups are eating his legs as well! So although not giving birth to the pups, he is providing for the young.

"He interupted neither with his name" - the important piece you have not quoted in the passage of time, several days have passed, day, night, day, night. Over this period of time he has rotted away to nothing, a period of time so long that he is forgotten, his name is never mentioned again!

Sorry for not seeing this post before, I love Clive Barkers work...in fact seeing this post, I am going to dig out my Barker collection and choose a title to read!
