Oh, Good Book?

"Westerners revere the Greek legends. Versemen retell the represented events, the resplendent scenes, where, hellbent, the Greek freemen seek revenge whenever Helen, the new-wed empress, weeps."

Notice anything about that passage? Yes? No? Well, read it again and pay attention to the vowels...
Yep, they're all Es.
The passage is from a book called Eunoia (The shortest word in the English language to contain all vowels. It means 'Beautiful Thinking'.) and it is written by a man named Christian Bok. The book consists of fiction written so that each chapter only contains one vowel. There are more snippets from the book Here including examples from each of the vowels. It's quite impressive!

So long, for now!
