Don’t fool yourself. English isn’t inherently superior, or easier to learn, or more sonically pleasing. Its international usage comes from forceful assimilation and legacy of colonialistic injection. It isn’t a deed that one should take pride in.
Context coming soon… (I hope!)
If you ever die in a library, it will happen in the archives. The weight of forgotten books is oppressive, and the silence surrounding them is unbearable. All of the books seem to be waiting to choke you with the dust coating their spines. The forgotten characters seem ready to jump out and force you into their world. Nobody wants to be forgotten. Nobody is comfortable among the forgotten.
Happy National Library Week.
