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.

    Yvor Winters,
    Forms of Discovery, Ch. 7

    Very very nicely done. One for the Digital Ages--maybe better than we deserve. Lots of time, work and thought. Tight.

    Oh! Such a fortuitous find is a Fool’s fabulous fool –

    Forever deserving to be kis’t, and added to my A-list –

    Reposting is a bloggy honor, there’s nothing like old school –

    I proudly salute King George, he’s always on my list.

    They all go on the list — they all go on the list,
    And they'll none of 'em be missed — they'll none
    of 'em be missed.
