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

    Amazing how those opera singers rise up to live again after brutal killings, isn't it? Good thing, though, given opera plots. Dumb comment aside, this looks to have been another adventurous and well-mounted production over on the Left Coast. Lucky you to have witnessed it and lived to tell the tale.

    Susan Scheids comment made me laugh... truly amazing how many deaths and resurrections occur in the space of a couple of hours...
