Mark Notes January 14, 2013Posted by Mark Folse in books, New Orleans, Odd Words, Toulouse Street.
After a quick read of the Spark Notes to refresh my memory (noting, kiddies, the editorial errors I think they leave in these on purpose) and an hours-long, wide-ranging conversations on Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness to help my son hammer out his paper for AP English, I have arrived at the following summary.
Section I: What is this shit?
Section II: This shit is fucked. This Kurtz guy is crazy.
Section III: This shit is fucked beyond the ability of your bourgeois, home office-minds to comprehend. All you people are crazy.
