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.

    Forms of Discovery, Ch. 7

    More to say when I am back in front of my own laptop, but I want you to know that, as soon as I got back into Internet range, I began to check for the post you intimated was coming soon. Well! First chance I had to borrow a friend's equipment, I rushed to read this fabulous post. Quite aside from being chuffed right back at ya for the mention, right off, the Muybridge is terrific. I can hardly wait to pick up the Schorske & listen to all the pieces you identIfy. Wonderful, wonderful post.
