Notes

42. November 10, 2020 - The classic Greek tale attributed to Aesop of the fox who lusts after the grapes --and is ultimately unable to reach them-- solidifies grapes' role as a food worthy of desire. Their obvious connection to wine and pleasure is shown by images of grape clusters adorning symposium pottery like the Exsekias-authored kylix known as the Dionysus Cup depicting the titular god reclined in a boat --the mast of which is entwined in grape-bearing vines. But never once in all of Hellenic culture do the Greeks care to acknowledge that grapes are just tiny, edible juice-balloons. And yet we credit them with understanding so much.
