    syntax-related question

    Hi, everybody!

    1) I have a syntax-related question. Could you, please, help me to do a syntax analysis for the sentence below.
    The creatures Jeremy finds in "River Monsters" are so deeply satisfying, primordial nature incarnate.

    Question: I'm not sure if "deeply satisfying" and "primordial nature creatures" are separate syntax units, or it is a series of modifiers for "incarnate".

    2) If these are independent, can I say this sentence in the following way& The creatures Jeremy finds in River Monsters are so deeply satisfying. They are primordial nature incarnate.

    I would say that they are independant. Your two sentences in 2) express the idea much better. .
