About This Item
Inspired by Samuel Foote's poem, "The Grand Panjandrum," The Object-Lesson presents a stunning series of seemingly random and unrelated events. A missing artificial limb, ghostly spectres, and the statue of Corrupted Endeavour all have a place in this enigmatic tale, which combines elements of French surrealism, Japanese haiku, and lots of good fun. With its humorous obscurity and puzzling intrigues, The Object-Lesson delights and provokes.
