Weblog Commenting and Trackback by HaloScan.com The Dark Window: Peanut!

Prepare to be horrified...

Thursday, June 17, 2004


For all of you who read Seb's Sadly, No!: Do you remember how his blog had all those really good entries a couple of months ago? The reason they were so good is because Seb was in the hospital and a lovable girl named Peanut took the reins while he was gone. Well, now she has her own website and a terrific post on a subject very near and dear to my heart: Stephen Dedalus. So go and read.

And since we're talking about Stephen, I can't resist...

Sitting at his side Stephen solved out the problem. He proves by algebra that Shakespeare's ghost is Hamlet's grandfather. Sargent peered askance through his slanted glasses. Hockeysticks rattled in the lumberroom: the hollow knock of a ball and calls from the field.

Across the page the symbols moved in grave morrice, in the mummery of their letters, wearing quaint caps of squares and cubes. Give hands, traverse, bow to partner: so: imps of fancy of the Moors. Gone too from the world, Averroes and Moses Maimonides, dark men in mien and movement, flashing in their mocking mirrors the obscure soul of the world, a darkness shining in brightness which brightness could not comprehend.
