Is second childishness and mere oblivion,. Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything. I know, I know: That performance would not have impressed the judges at your recent Shakespeare contest. I know. But in that speech, you see how Shakespeare—more than years ago—recognized that we are babies sort of twice in our lives if we live long enough : at the beginning , at the end. Our final years. Second childishness , he called it. We all know that there are some cultures that revere rather than fear or infantilize the aged.
How would you characterize ours? Now … speaking of all this—a brief story about our other grandson, Carson, who just turned seven last Sunday. Not long ago, I was talking with my family about today —and Carson told me about a poem he liked, a poem by Shel Silverstein. Oops, I just weakened my own argument: I listened to a kid! Okay, back to As You Like It.
Actually, there are four weddings, and then, in a surprise, Hymen—the god of marriage—shows up to solemnize it all Another mild digression! The kids loved the performance—especially the end, when Hymen appears. The kids erupted while I tried to pretend that … well, that everything was, you know, Shakespeare. Not dirty! This is culture! I have to say that in some specific, limited ways we do listen to the young nowadays far more than when I was a kid. She was getting ready for me! On the screen, young people—girls and boys—are doing things that never occurred in the movies of my childhood.
Like smoking, drinking, drugging, swearing, … Glitter Guy stuff. And kicking butt. When I was growing up, the only characters who kicked butt were full-grown white men. Nowadays, anyone can be an butt-kicker. Sometimes, too, as you know, teenagers in films even save the world. The earliest film I remember showing that was War Games in How many times have you seen this? Huck has run away from his violent, drunken, even homicidal father and is hiding out on a Mississippi River island near his hometown.
Jim is there too. Jim—an adult black slave Huck knows very well. Huck learns that Jim has also run away and is hoping to find and rescue his wife and children, who were sold elsewhere. Both these runaways—a young white boy, an adult African American—realize they should join forces, and literary scholars now rank the story of their subsequent journey on a raft down the Mississippi River among the very best in all of American literature. Do people know where they are? Or are people believing their cover stories? Jim and Huck have found some old clothing from a house washed away in a Mississippi flood, and Jim suggests that when Huck goes into town, he should dress as a girl.

So he puts on a dress and practices walking and talking like a girl. Observing, Jim tells him a couple of things he ought to do differently. And Huck says, I took notice, and done better When we looked at that passage in class, I always asked my English III-ers if they saw anything remarkable going on. Teacher waits, waits, waits. I took notice, and done better. I love that sentence, for it shows the true wisdom of the young, the inexperienced—the rest of us, really— all of us—discovering someone worth listening to, then doing it.
This has been one of the most astonishing discoveries for me on Facebook.
