I the Obscure

August 17, 1986

If Ray Gordon in his letter of 10 August is concerned about the use of words such as solipsistic, amanuensis , and interlocutor in Daniel Balderston's review of "I the Supreme" by Augusto Roa Bastos, wait until he reads Roa Bastos's book, where between pages 23 and 29 he can find the following words: intempestive, culicid, letricide, scriptuary, opilative, and rejuntative. These will surely sending him reeling toward his OED .
