Ignorance, Jessy Randall

“One morning, out of the blue, the idea of illustrating the Inferno came to [Rauschenberg]. He had never read the poem, of course…” Calvin Tomkins, Off the Wall: Robert Rauschenberg and the Art World of Our Time (Picador, 2005).

Today, out of the blue, I decided to write a sequel to Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past, about which I know almost nothing. Then after lunch, pow! Kablooey! I realized what I ought to do instead is a ballet based on Ulysses, since it’s controversial and contains dirty words. But right before bed the real revelation hit me – what the world really needs is a chicken casserole encompassing Beowulf. And so I am sitting down right now to skim the Cliffs Notes version so I can begin cooking.
