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.
