Wilson does it again

September 3, 2012

“If you tell someone that you have attempted to write a story of Plato’s account of Atlantis, following the forms of Paradise Lost, but that you sometimes think that you are not up to the challenge, then she will think (and it will be a she that you told this to) that you are just bragging and walk away disgusted. Or, contrariwise, she will be impressed, and the two of you will deserve each other.” (Douglas Wilson, Wordsmithy, p. 70)

Current Listenings: “A Poem on the Underground Wall,” Simon and Garfunkel, “A Stick a Carrot and a String,” mewithoutYou
