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

    Thank you, George! We do, at last, have a DVD player. Many thanks for the Flynn update. Just last night we saw "Without a Paddle" and Mr. Reynolds showed up in this spoofy Deliverance-hinting movie, in Oregon, playing a hermit. Even under the raggedy beard and scruffy hair, his hunkiness, um, delivers, with great comedic flair. Some very funny scenes in this movie, but not for those who blush way too easily. To see him at his most elegant and recent, rent Mystery, Alaska. His role isn't large but he's silvery and hunky.

    And did YOU know that Mike Nichols is doing "Spamalot" on Broadway (Python's Holy Grail) starring Tim Curry, David Hyde Pierce and Hank Azaria?

    Belay that bit about renting "Mystery, Alaska" for those to who blush way too much - I remember some of the PG 13 scenes as being immodest to be sure (unfortunately none of them are with Burt...), however, they both movies succeed in that they entertain.
