Word of the week
noun: The error of placing something out of its proper place; also something placed erroneously.
From Greek ana- (against) + topos (place). Anatopism is to place what anachronism is to time. Earliest documented use: 1812.
“The Bard is often accused of anatopism — that is, getting his geography wrong. Why else would he, in The Taming of the Shrew, put a sailmaker in Bergamo, a landlocked city in Italy, ask critics?”
D. Murali; Shakespeare, ‘Literary Equivalent of an Electron’; The Hindu (Chennai, India); Dec 2, 2007.
“Homer may have taken some slight and temporary liberty with the facts, but it does not amount to the major anatopism that some commentators have found in it and should not be taken as evidence that Homer did not have firsthand knowledge of the area.”
John Victor Luce; Celebrating Homer’s Landscapes; Yale University Press; 1998.
Ten years ago almost no one had a cell phone and today no one doesn’t not have one.
First day of school, is there a certain scent you associate with those first days? Like the old smell of mimeograph fluid, paste? Pencil shavings? How about lunch, what do you recall about the lunch dynamics in the cafeteria or on the play ground?
Was your first day crisp with fall? Or was it hot and unfair?
Spend some time back in your school days.
