“A Sunday’s Madness” / Memorable Fancies #1727

April 21, 1701, Biĉetre Prison, France, the warden writes: “How is it possible that prisoner Touzard can be what he claims to be? He must be mad! He’s been held here so many years that his madness is perhaps understandable, although certainly not excusable.

“Poor man, losing his mind to so little purpose. But now he’s exceeded the bounds of all reason and even madness itself: ‘atheist,’ he says he is – as if that were possible!”

[after Michel Foucault]
