|Note the all capital letters, which shows how important these papers are.|
In that column I refer to the collection of essays from my undergraduate years which I collected, during the final week of my senior year, into a yellow folder that I labeled "Literary and Philosophical Criticism." I will note in my defense that I got this idea from one of my roommates, who actually had his papers all bound together into a book that he titled "The Collected Works." My yellow folder paled in comparison.
Nevertheless, here it is in all its glory, along with action shots of two of the papers I referenced in the article.
|Philosophizing about Aristotle in sophomore year.|
|Fall of senior year: the writing has definitely improved.|
And the lesson to take away from all of this, as you read columns in which I include personal anecdotes: I'm not making this stuff up.
