Oh my god. I think I would’ve liked J.M. Barrie, too.
For Barrie, Roget’s masterpiece was synonymous with virtue itself. To describe the one saving grace of the play’s villain, Captain Hook, Barrie adds, “The man is not wholly evil—-he has a Thesaurus in his cabin.”
So, remember the thesaurus I bought like six months ago? Found a book about Roget today and I’m sitting down to read it – The Man who Made Lists, by Joshua Kendall – and wow. I’m on page three and wow. It’s too bad this guy’s dead. I think I would have liked him.
I have another genius idol. YAY!
My character has stumbled upon a magical mirror. However, instead of showing their reflection, it shows what they’d look like in an alternate universe! Send me a verse and I’ll describe what they see themselves as in said verse, and their reaction to seeing it.
Send me a ▓ to see how I, the MUN, would react to meeting your character in person.
