Peculiarly combined (Ozick)

In every dossier he saw stupidity; in their faces stupidity was peculiarly combined with vivacity. What they were in reality was a species of low theater folk, vaudevillians, and in addition to this strain of the histrionic they harbored an inclination to dominate and to crush.
Cynthia Ozick, The Cannibal Galaxy
