tomorrow we discuss Maus and watch Resnais' Night and Fog, which will make for a harrowing evening I am sure. I have a vague notion of the general point I want to make and will work on pulling it together tomorrow. I ran over to Berkeley today to get Bersani and Dutoit's book with the Resnais chapter that shares space with Beckett and Rothko. when I saw it was not checked out I dashed downtown to get on BART to get the book before anyone checked it out. it's always checked out.
but so the passage on Night and Fog is exactly what I need to get my point across. thank you Leo and Ulysse. just because he is nice to look at.
the book is out of print so I'm making a pdf out of this copy when I have the spare time to scan in 200 pages. I have three months.
can you tell I'm excited to have gotten my hands on this book?
