I'm not making as much progress as I would like. Then I look at some titles of books other people have written about him:
Mallarmé and the Art of Being Difficult
And then I think, Yeah, that sounds about right.
I will be finished (have to be finished) by Monday a.m., at the latest. And then I can finally get down to the serious business of sleep, glorious sleep.
Wish me luck. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to figure out how to write 10 more pages about the poet of nothingness. A bientôt.
