Fiction. Short Story. A hilarious apologia for perhaps the most maligned of Shakespeare's minor characters, FALSTAFF: APOTHEOSIS revisits Henry IV's beloved coward, seen here a most complicated fellow, or misunderstood at the very least: for all of the insults, is he not, after all, a master practitioner of the "heroism of humiliation" and progenitor of epic naps? Here we are given full survey of his foibles and finer points by one of France's most intriguing and enigmatic authors, translated with apt fervor by Jacob Siefring.
