First things first. Thank you all for your good wishes for my speedy recovery. I think I have turned the corner, and later today I am going to try to launch the Mimesis Appreciation.
GT, I will certainly have a go at explaining my anarchism. To be perfectly honest, that has not been at the center of my thoughts for half a century, but if Google is to be believed, it is, more than anything else, what I am known for, insofar as I am known at all. Perhaps after I finish the Auerbach, I will tackle your questions.
I just bought, through Amazon.com, a comfortable plush backrest, so I have been sitting propped up in bed watching the chaos of the Republican primary contest. Needless to say, life does not offer many idle pleasures quite like listening to Rick Perry condemning Mitt Romney for Vulture Capitalism. One needs the talents of a Jonathan Swift married to the ideological sensibility of a Karl Marx to strike the right tone.
