Walker Brents III
Illuminates the solitary’s half-light
by way of Burton’s Anatomy of Melancholy
Concerned about the fate of the sincere reader in the sincere reader’s rigorous solitude, Walker believes it might have to be Burton’s Anatomy of Melancholy that will guide his thoughts this time out… a book with breadth to match its depth, not to mention its fourfold humorousness.

Walker talks monthly on the last Thursday of the month.
