A Pilgrim in Narnia … in Italian (Friday Feature)

I had a gentleman from Italy contact me to see if he could translate a blog post I did back in the Spring, when this sort of thing was still kind of a joke. The original blog was, “David Foster Wallace’s Parody of Donald Trump’s Presidential Run.” In the gargantuan and brilliant Infinite Jest, by drawing the trendline of American culture forward David Foster Wallace predicted selfies, the smartphone revolution, and Netflix. He also predicted a culture in identity crisis. In sheer jest I threw this post together, clearly not aware of all the trendlines of American culture myself. A blogger in Italy has translated the post for his own blog. To that huge cohort of Italian readers of A Pilgrim in Narnia, enjoy “La Parodia di David Foster Wallace sulla corsa presidenziale di Donald Trump — Traduzionne” at PaperLifeBlog.




About Brenton Dickieson

“A Pilgrim in Narnia” is a blog project in reading and talking about the work of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, and the worlds they touched. As a "Faith, Fantasy, and Fiction" blog, we cover topics like children’s literature, apologetics and philosophy, myths and mythology, fantasy, theology, cultural critique, art and writing. This blog includes my thoughts as I read through Lewis and Tolkien and reflect on my own life and culture. In this sense, I am a Pilgrim in Narnia--or Middle Earth, or Fairyland. I am often peeking inside of wardrobes, looking for magic bricks in urban alleys, or rooting through yard sale boxes for old rings. If something here captures your imagination, leave a comment, “like” a post, share with your friends, or sign up to receive Narnian Pilgrim posts in your email box. Brenton Dickieson is a father, husband, friend, university lecturer, and freelance writer from Prince Edward Island, Canada. You can follow him on Twitter, @BrentonDana.
