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....

    I had tremendous fun listening to the tracks alongside your witty and inimitable descriptions. Though it's a close question, my favorite may be this: "while an operatic languor drifts through the barcarolle of "Counting" with Carla Bozulich." I will confess (call me predictable), that I went first for the "woozy waltz," and indeed it is.
