The New Yorker Discussion
__________, that little New Yorker piece to which you cited us long ago was actually a part of a The New Yorker's Book of the Month discussion. It is extraordinarily difficult to navigate around there, but I found that entire discussion. It took place a year ago. I have recently felt more comfortable with reading things about the book now that I am almost finished reading the book itself. This New Yorker discussion is a dandy. I continue to blunder through the Spanish material that __________ provided.
As for the little snippet that you cited, I actually did think of the sermon in Moby Dick when reading the section on Seaman, I did also notice the mirrors. . .but snakes? What snakes? I guess I will have to go back and read that particular comment.
