— I'm reading a book by Richard Hughes, The Fox in the Attic. In the first page, chapter one "Polly and Rachel" there is a phrase that I didn't get it.
"and here in a sodden tangle of brambles the scent of a fox hung, too heavy today to rise or dissipate."
— What does that mean? A smell of a fox that has been hung?
— I found in the dictionary that hung can be used as: (be hung with) be adorned with. the walls of her hall were hung with examples of her work
— In that way I might understand that a scent of a fox was in the air, not a scent of a fox hung.
Could you clarify it to me? Thanks.
