last time we brainstormed on future readings. it was a bit muddled at the end, but i think we left it that we will be reading stuff on isabelle eberhardt for this coming week, and something of crowley’s for the second week in june.
in the direction of eberhardt,
Portrait of the Artist as a Young Nomad is an enthusiastic rendition of her life (this will be made more interesting by questions that are raised in the following link)
here is an academic paper (a review of a review of a play about her life! couldn’t get more academic than that!), that seems interesting to me so far.
here is an article by eberhardt…
and for more of a sense of what was happening when eberhardt was alive, here is an interview with an anthropologist about her and her time…
(one of the things that comes up for me while reading about eberhardt is the question of how we will/want to be remembered after we’re dead, how frequently a person’s anarchy is disappeared once they’re not around.
