Village Bells

unpublishedrhyme:

“How are we to understand a world we have lost or, rather, a world we have just lost?  How are we to study phenomena that, even though close to us in time, bear witness to a paradoxical distance?  With this end in mind, we would clearly do well to pay particular attention to what is no longer current, to what is unusual, and to what is dismissed as absurd.  Plainly we must attempt to study the genesis of meaninglessness, and then the evolution and diffusion of modes of incomprehension”

Alan Corbin, Village Bells
