Just kidding…A Confederacy of Dunces. The book was read and discussed prior to the Holidays. We are just putting a placeholder in the blog for some future deeper thoughts, but what’s to say? Do you like the sound of your own unexpected laughter? Read the book. Then try the late Romans, including Boethius, of course. You may skip the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. That is mostly dangerous propaganda. Better skip the Romantics and the Victorians, too. For the contemporary period, you should study some selected comic books. We recommend Batman especially, for he tends to transcend the abysmal society in which he’s found himself. His morality is rather rigid, but The Illuminado rather respect Batman.
Oh, Fortuna, you capricious sprite, thank you for this book.
