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

    What a nice present for your readers, all these luscious music links! And here I had just commented to my better half how I despised popular music. I must make amends post haste.

    I am sad, however. The link to the Nils' George Harrison WMGGW's is no longer available.

    The Pinback song and video are very imaginative. I love them!

    Thanks, my fine Fool!

    My dad (deceased since 2000) would have loved this violin piece. His favorite Beatles song was "Till There Was You" and I know this would have been his second choice.
