Fools and Folly in Erasmus and Porter

Edited by Thomas Austenfeld UNT Press ePub

Fools and Folly in Erasmus and Porter

Jewel Spears Brooker

In the articulation of her literary ancestry, Katherine Anne Porter created a place of honor for Erasmus, and in her personal canon, she made room at the top for The Praise of Folly. She told her nephew that she had been formed by Erasmus "from her tenth year" (Letters 415). In 1932, she was reading him in Basel, and on June 19, 1941, she signed a contract with Doubleday to write his biography. After the publication of Ship of Fools, she reiterated her admiration, hinting that her representation of folly was inspired by his. Porter was drawn to Erasmus in large part because of his moral imagination. Both were keen observers of human nature and both considered folly to be endemic in the human condition. But they present strikingly different concepts of folly. For Erasmus, folly is foolishness, and although it is the butt of his satire, he generally finds it amusing. For Porter, on the other hand, folly is innate wickedness. When writing of ordinary human life in The Praise of Folly, he is tolerant and urbane; in contrast, in Ship of Fools, she is harsh and scornful. Unlike Porter, Erasmus actually likes his fools, and far more than she, he identifies with them in their folly.

Chapter 3: Peterson's Progress

Seminoles

Getting Defensive

Bill Peterson became well known for his high-powered offenses at Florida State. But the defense was just as important in the school’s breakthrough 1964 season. The Seminoles’ tenth-ranked defensive unit allowed fewer than eight points per game. It opened the season with three shutouts. The dominant defensive line was given the nickname of “The

Magnificent Seven.” It was so good that people often forgot about the quality of the team’s defensive backs. That is why they became known as “The Forgotten Four.”

One reason for the scoring outburst was wide receiver Fred

Biletnikoff. He was one of the best offensive players to ever play college football. In fact, the award given annually to the best college wide receiver is now named the Biletnikoff Award. Biletnikoff played for

Florida State from 1962 to 1964. In 1964, he set single-season school records with 57 catches, 987 receiving yards, and 11 touchdowns. For that, he was chosen as Florida State’s first consensus All-American.

Envoy

James Whitcomb Riley Indiana University Press ePub

MANY pleasures of youth have been buoyantly sung—

And, borne on the winds of delight, may they beat

With their palpitant wings at the hearts of the Young,

And in bosoms of Age find as warm a retreat!—

Yet sweetest of all of the musical throng,

Though least of the numbers that upward aspire,

Is the one rising now into wavering song,

As I sit in the silence and gaze in the fire.

’Tis a Winter long dead that beleaguers my door

And muffles his steps in the snows of the past:

And I see, in the embers I’m dreaming before,

Lost faces of love as they looked on me last:—

The round, laughing eyes of the desk-mate of old

Gleam out for a moment with truant desire—

Then fade and are lost in a City of Gold,

As I sit in the silence and gaze in the fire.

And then comes the face, peering back in my own,

Of a shy little girl, with her lids drooping low,

As she faltering tells, in a far-away tone,

Area of a Triangle

The area of a two-dimensional figure is the number of square units enclosed by the figure. A square unit is the space enclosed by a 1 unit by 1 unit square.

To find the area of a triangle you multiply half the base of the triangle by its height.

In a triangle, any side is a base. The height is an altitude, from the base. Remember, an altitude is a perpendicular segment from the base to the angle opposite the base.

Rules for Finding the Area of a Triangle

1. Identify the base. Any side of the triangle can be the base.

2. Identify the height. The height can be inside, or outside the triangle.

3. The area is calculated by using the following formula: A = _

2 bh.

triangle can be the base.

Step 2 Identify the height. The height can

be inside, or outside the triangle.

Step 3 The area is calculated by using the

following formula: A = _12 bh.

In a right triangle, the height can be the other leg, so, AB is the height; AB = 8

Oilcloth Tote with Fabric Handles

Finished Size: 7˝ × 11˝ × 4˝

What Do I Need?

½ yard of oilcloth

½ yard of fabric for the lining

¼ yard of fabric for the handles

⅓ yard of interfacing

2½˝ × 2½˝ square of paper

Large paper clips

Basic sewing supplies

special skills

•Refer to The Rules of Sewing

• Using an iron

Prepare the Pieces

1.Cut 2 pieces of oilcloth to measure 12½˝ × 15˝ each for the outside.

2.Cut 2 pieces of fabric to measure 12½˝ × 15˝ each for the lining.

3.Cut 2 pieces of fabric to measure 4˝ × 15˝ each for the handles.

4.Cut 2 pieces of interfacing to measure 4˝ × 15˝ each for the handles.

TIP

If your oilcloth fabric is a little wrinkly and crinkly, resist the urge to use an iron! Irons and oilcloth sure don’t mix very well. Not only will your oilcloth be a melted mess, but your iron will be a mess too! Use a warm hairdryer held a few inches away to gently release the wrinkles. Be careful not to put it so close that the cloth starts to melt! After warming the oilcloth, I usually stack magazines on top until it has cooled.
