a fool in the forest


  • A fool, a fool! I met a fool i' the
    A motley fool; a miserable world!
    As I do live by food, I met a fool
    Who laid him down and bask'd him
        in the sun,
    And rail'd on Lady Fortune in good
    In good set terms and yet a motley

    As You Like It,
    Act II, Scene 7

    L'homme y passe à travers des
        forêts de symboles
    Qui l'observent avec des regards

    Les Fleurs du Mal,

    [T]here is almost no subject-matter, and what little one can disentangle is foolish....
    One would call the style verbose, except that by definition verbosity is the use of words in excess of the occasion, and there seems to be no occasion.

    Thanks for the great links! I had to look up Venus on the Half Shelf in The Invisible Library because it is 1) not a book and 2) a book. The not-a-book I thought was by Kurt Vonnegut. I did not know who wrote the "book" Venus on the Half Shelf and signed him/herself Kilgore Trout (Philip Jose Farmer? I didn't know/remember that. That almost doesn't seem correct.) Wondered where the mention of Vonnegut would be. I am confused. As usual. Always fun to read your blog. Thx again.
