Metamorphosis

Sarah, now I'm crow-eating.

I must admit, I started Mary Zimmerman's Metamorphosis skeptically, probably because I made the mistake of paying too close of attention to the stage directions and stage directions always seem a little, I don't know, snobby and controlling. I even started to bristle at the Midas as Evil Rich Man because, afterall, it is the Evil Rich Man who supports the arts, isn't it? But I now agree with you that this is a fabulous play.

1. Fun with form, especially the narration/chorus type thing, which I bet you are using in your poetry, aren't you? Aren't you?

2. It was sweet. Tender, you know.

Thank you for lending it to me.

I may bring it in, if you'll lend it to me again, when I take the Classics course this year.

To all else, I recommend it. And that's quite the change.

How did I miss this post? And would I ever lend you something I didn't think you'd enjoy? I've kept my Salinger to myself. I'm glad you saw the beauty/genius of Zimmerman. And yes, I do like to play with the choral voice. Remind me to show you sometime.
