a fool in the forest

Epigraphs

  • A fool, a fool! I met a fool i' the
        forest,
    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
        terms,
    In good set terms and yet a motley
        fool.

    As You Like It,
    Act II, Scene 7

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

    Les Fleurs du Mal,
    “Correspondances”

    [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.

    Yvor Winters,
    Forms of Discovery, Ch. 7

    I am stumped on this post title...organic bromine? Worth its weight in gold?

    Thanks for the mention, my Fine Fool!

    Dear me, Miz Pattie, I mustn't go around sowing perplexity, must I?

    The title of this post is meant to indicate that this is Edition 12 of those posts that I designate as "TW3". That coinage was last explained in a footnote back in May, in Edition 7 of the series.
