wrought is an interesting word to apply (see ryan review: 'wrought language'). the concise oxford says see 'work' - as in 'work on'.. make efforts, be a craftsman [sic], bring about an effect or influence eg work wonders, be in motion or agitated, hammer into shape, excite by degrees, advance gradually to climax .. it evokes the effort, the effect of reading, the sexuality of duty.
