Are you reading Vinaver's edition? The Oxford text, complete Malory? If not, sir, you are reading shit.

"Sympathy for the Devil", then, huh?

WHO STARTED DISCUSSING PARADISE LOST AND DIDN'T INVITE ME



Satan is only a sympathetic character for maybe the first three or four books of Paradise Lost, and in flashbacks. Then he gets his shit ****ed because he tried to be heroic and revolutionary, and according to Milton, being heroic and revolutionary just ****s your shit in the end.


Basically, Satan is an expy of Oliver Cromwell.

The Devil is my homey

Actually I knew a person who took part in a Satanic ritual. For education

It sounded really neat. There wasn't half as much goat sacrifice as you might think. And by that I mean, there was no goat sacrifice at all. They pretty much lit some candles and weird incense and meditated and said some prayers to Ol' Scratch

My friend described it as relaxing and slightly surreal. I wish I knew a Satanist

A class of people who get a bad rap, ftr. Most of them are just rebellious high school kids who never outgrew *that* phase, sure, but y'know just because you worship the devil doesn't mean that you want to kill babies and dethrone the Kingdom of God. From what I've heard most of it is just about... uh, y'know, pursuit of happiness and peace with your shit and... shit

I don't know for sure though I need to do more research. TIME TO READ WIKIPEDIA ARTICLES AND NOT PURCHASE ANY OFFICIAL LITERATURE WHATSOEVER

Somewhere, a priest is giving his sermon while looking out over his ever-diminishing congregation and wondering where everyone went

People should use the name Ol' Scratch more often.

Well, let me put it to you another way:

If you have anything that isn't in Middle English, you're a pussy.

If you have anything that's based on Caxton's printed edition, you're reading shit.

This leaves Vinaver's edition. http://www.amazon.com/Malory-Works-T...1104439&sr=8-1 There's also a three volume hardcover edition with critical apparatus, but I have no idea where one would acquire such a thing these days.
