Weekend Reading – The Making Of Schiller

photoFriedrich Schiller’s strange education at a military academy that promoted poetry, rhetoric and Enlightenment principles. Also, caning.

This does not actually reassure me. It’s more like the second coming of Rod McKuen.

So, while poetry only bookstores aren’t exactly blossoming everywhere, there are a lot more than there were just a few years ago (when it was really just Grolier’s in Cambridge and Innisfree in Boulder) And while it might be an exaggeration to call them wildly profitable, they clearly can be economically viable.

The unrecognized republic of Zaqistan.

In search of the new flâneur.
