I wanted to spend today’s blog post talking about something slightly less emotionally charged. Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like many of my recent posts feature writing that is kind of heavy. So, in order to keep my morale at its best, I found something that I think you’ll enjoy for its tongue-in-cheek critique of European values.
Artful Dodge Vol. 3 No. 1 features Chapters 6-11 of Alexander Wat’s “Lucifer Unemployed,” translated by Lillian Vallee. In it, Lucifer is dodging around town, talking to different people, trying to find something, the truth maybe—or perhaps just his own self-esteem. The truth about what, I’m not quite sure. Every once in a while, I even thought Lucifer was trying to preach. Lucifer, unfortunately, seemed to have gotten the short end of the stick: he barely ends up with more understanding than when he started, and it seems that he is unable to make any impact in a world already turned heathen.
Tune in tomorrow for another exciting revelation!
