what'd you say?

I think maybe if I just keep repeating myself I will eventually explain what it is I want to explain. way the hell too much material for monday but I did at least come to something like an understanding of the van Gogh portion of my obsession and I suspect it might be a bit complicated for undergrads who are not familiar with philosophical discourse. once I have the outline a bit more untangled I will post it here and you all can tell me what you think.

but so I don't have time actually to say anything about Rimbaud other than: Rimbaud? Take everything vanGogh does with paint and apply it to language. I mean there's surely more to be said than that but that's the gist of what I wanted them to get. but then there's the whole "I as an other" line that makes sense in the context of metaphysics and representation but only after a long explanation that I will not have time to give. and yet it is one of the core areas of investigation for this class.

monday is going to be a mess but it could be kind of fun. I hope they don't rebel and attack.
