The Anatomy of Melancholy (2 of 2)

Publication Date: June 30, 2011

Chapter: English Literature in the Early Seventeenth Century

I'll readily admit that this strip has absolutely nothing to do with the work in question. At the moment, in the English Norton, I'm in the middle of a section called "The Science of Self and World," and every work is just an essay about the human condition. It's quite possibly the most boring material I've ever read. I'd rather go back to college and retake "History of Literary Criticism" than read these pages

Which is to say, I'm skipping them. Yell at me if you want, but there are simply no comics I can draw about this stuff. Apparently, the only Hobbes I care about is a stuffed tiger.

(And yes, Molly's hair magically grew back. Just go with it.)
