Would anyone here like to join me for a Lichtenbergian / Lacuna summer reading program? I propose a Roberto Calasso summer. I purchased Ka quite a few years ago and never quite got around to reading it, so I hope to remedy that now. What brought this on is someone at my work place putting a bunch of free books in the break room. One of the them was The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony. I immediately remembered Ka and thought … ahhhh. It is time.
But this is the type of material that BEGS discussion. I propose we read Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony, followed by Ka, and then The Ruin of Kasch and, finally, K. (Notice the alliteration in the titles … not sure if that’s intentional.) This would be my first reading outside of my “Native American” obsession in years.
I don’t know if there would be any interest in this here, but there it is.
For those who don’t know anything about Calasso or these works, I trust you know what a “search engine” is. Nose around a bit and see if this interests you. It’s something I’ve been meaning to get around to for a while now. Can’t wait to dive in.
