a lotus snack

Standard

Hi, folks– Since Voreblog will begin twreading section 5 of Ulysses today over at Wandering Rocks, I figured I’d post my book graffitti for the first part of this section.  If you want to see my remarks on section four, click here.

So, let the lotus eating begin.

“Too hot to quarrel”– It’s too darn hot! (Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate)

“Flowers of idleness”– seasons of mists and mellow fruitfulness (John Keats’s To Autumn)

“Or is it the volume is equal of the weight?”– Yup, that’s me and math, alright.

“Too showy.  That must be why women go after them.  Uniforms”– yes, indeed.

“Hate company when you” — are trying to be sneaky.

“How’s the body?”– So it goes (Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse 5)

“Women all for caste till you touch the spot”– hmmm. liking Leo a bit less here.

“Dark lady and fair man”– Othello in reverse?

“Poor papa!” — Papa, can you hear me? (Legrand and the Bergman’s Yentl)

That’s enough for today.  Part 2 up soon. 

Leave a comment with some of your book graffitti from this section.
