as such would have it

< Previous | Next >


Hi, there ;)

Today I came across these sentences when I was reading something.

The young man was hunting with his dogs, and Echo was struck by his perfect figure.
As such would have it, the young man became lost.

I guess it means
Many stories go like somebody got lost and the other who's stuck on him would show the way out. and So does this one.

is this right? :O

and I really wonder where this structure came from.

Help! me out~

Thanks a million!

    as such, being what is indicated; in that capacity: An officer of the law, as such, is entitled to respect. itself or in themselves: The position, as such, does not appeal to him, but the salary is a lure.
