MAN. A human being. This definition includes not only the adult male sex of the human species, but women and children; examples: "of offences against man, some are more immediately against the king, other's more immediately against the subject." Hawk. P. C. book 1, c. 2, s. 1. Offences against the life of man come under the general name of homicide, which in our law signifies the killing of a man by a man." Id. book 1, c. 8, s. 2.
     2. In a more confined sense, man means a person of the male sex; and sometimes it signifies a male of the human species above the age of puberty. Vide Rape. It was considered in the civil or Roman law, that although man and person are synonymous in grammar, they had a different acceptation in law; all persons were men, but all men, for example, slaves, were not persons, but things. Vide Barr. on the Stat. 216, note.

In the much anthologised 'Mansize in Marble' from Grim Tales (1893), in which the new wife is apparently raped by two stone effigies of carousing knights from the village church, the possibly impotent or sexually nervous husband recoils from the final image of his childlike Laura transformed into an eroticised corpse:

In "The End of March" Bishop spent more time on the image of the kites than she did in "Suicide of a Moderate Dictator," teasing it out over the course of several lines, playing with the rhythms, and hinting again at metaphor with "snarl," "mansize," and "sodden ghost." She made the later image more human and more animal at the same time; there is a blending of worlds that plays with the idea of an afterlife.
