Abstract

DOGS' LIVES / All knowledge, the totality of all questions and all answers, is contained in the dog. --Franz Kafka, "Investigations of a Dog" I AM TWENTY-SEVEN: Three weeks ago a black Great Dane stalked into my classroom as I was passing out theme topics. My students turned about to look. One of the freshman wits made an inane remark, which I immediately topped: "That may be the biggest dog I've ever seen." Memorable retort. Two of my students sniggered. I ushered the Great Dane into the hall. As I held its collar and maneuvered it out of English 102 (surely it was looking for the foreign language department), the dog's power and aloofness somehow coursed up my arm. Nevertheless, it permitted me to release it onto the north campus. Sinews, flanks, head. What a magnificent animal. It loped up the winter hillock outside Park Hall without looking back. Thinking on its beauty and self-possession, I returned to my classroom. And closed the door. TWENTY-SEVEN, AND HOLDING: AU of this is true. The incident of bit of what I remember, every bit of what I foresee, throws light on my built before World War I. We have lived
