Funny medieval doodles

With their wild hair and frantic gaze, these doodled men look like fools. They are waving as if to seek contact with the reader. The thing is, the reader is busy singing and listening to a sermon. That is because these 800-year-old images are found in a Missal, a book used during Holy Mass. What a shock it must have been for the serious user of the book, to flip the page and suddenly find yourself face to face with these funny creatures. And what a great contrast: a serious book with silly drawings.

Pic: Paris, Bibliothèque Sainte-Geneviève, MS 95 (Missal, 12th century). More about the manuscript here.

Ezra Pound at St. Elizabeths, March 1955. At the time, the poet was in the tenth year of his twelve-year confinement at the hospital for the insane in Washington, where he had been committed in lieu of standing trial for treason for his wartime support of Mussolini.
