      Going with the times, and with the classics too, as \’nihil novum sub sole\’, I suggest going back to some classics of the literature of plagues, pestilences, virulent epidemics, and pandemics. Here is my suggestion today: a fragment from Mary Shelley\’s The Last Man (1826). Many (hopefully not too many) episodes in the novel ring a bell with the world\’s experiences in 2020—although the novel is set in the Final Plague, just at the end of the 21st century. I have titled this fragment \”Voice to soundless thought\”: https://thishugestage.blogspot.com/2020/08/voice-to-soundless-thought.html
