Dave Cullen added a status update: Started Henry IV, Pt 2 this morning, w/out the training wheels! (Margin notes.) And I understand it! First time ever with Shakespeare. Guess I finally understand the language. Will go back to notes.

The Brothers by Masha Gessen

Clear rating
Patrick Brown is 78% done with The Brothers: This stuff about the other college kids is interesting (and tragic) but it feels a bit like it's diverted the book from its subject. Maybe it comes back around.

Wallace Stevens
“The Emperor of Ice-Cream

Call the roller of big cigars,
The muscular one, and bid him whip
In kitchen cups concupiscent curds.
Let the wenches dawdle in such dress
As they are used to wear, and let the boys
Bring flowers in last month's newspapers.
Let be be finale of seem.
The only emperor is the emperor of ice-cream.

Take from the dresser of deal,
Lacking the three glass knobs, that sheet
On which she embroidered fantails once
And spread it so as to cover her face.
If her horny feet protrude, they come
To show how cold she is, and dumb.
Let the lamp affix its beam.
The only emperor is the emperor of ice-cream.”
Wallace Stevens

“The pages are still blank, but there is a miraculous feeling of the words being there, written in invisible ink and clamoring to become visible”
Vladimir Nabokov
