The Underman as Cultural Icon:
The Saga of “Blanket Man”

Anarchist print of Blanket Man as revolutionary hero

2,055 words

“Blanket Man,” known in a previous life as Bernard (Ben) Hana, was a filth-ridden alcoholic, given to drinking methylated spirits attired in nothing other than a blanket and a loin cloth.

Re-Reading Rousseau

Maurice Quentin de La Tour, “Portrait of Jean-Jacques Rousseau” (1712–1778), pastel on paper, 1753

10,607 words

Translated by Greg Johnson*
