How do you like them apples, Mister Hiss?

Visionaire Issue 61: Larger Than Life

If only Eve had been more like Lilith, she might have said, "Hell no, I don't want none of your stinkin' apples, Mister Hiss! I've a hunger of a different sort."

I saw this image of Marina Abramovic by Martin Schoeller in the New York Times, posted in a Suzy Menkes article, "Thinking, and Literally Looking, Very Big" (November 21, 2011), and just couldn't let pass an opportunity to bring in Milton's Paradise Lost . . . sort of.

The image comes originally from the magazine Visionaire, and you can click on a loud, flashly website to investigate further if you like that sort of thing.

Ms. Abramovic is a Serbian performance artist based in New York City . . .

Hi Jefferey.

I'm a graduate student at Mississippi State University and I'm doing research on psychological movement in Paradise Lost & Paradise Regained.

While on EBSCOhost, I came across your essay "When Did Adam Fall in Paradise Lost?" The abstract sounds very interesting and I'm sure it would be very helpful for my research.

Unfortunately, my university doesn't carry the journal that your work was published in. I wanted to know if you could email me a copy for scholarly purposes.

If this is possible, please contact me at

Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you,


I apologize for contacting you so informally. I googled and googgled, but could find no way to contact you, other than your blog.

I'm hard to find, but Milton List messages would provide my address.

I've sent you an email.
