''The Audience''

Illustration by Violet Brunton



This wonderful image from Brunton illustrates a portion of Erasmus' classic work, The Praise of Folly. The specific text -

as transposed into English - associated with the illustration follows:


'And so this life be but a play - a part that each man acts, then sure some sit and watch,

an audience to that play, could such a play be set without an audience?'
