A Sample of Famous People Mentioned in Wittgenstein’s Mistress

November 1, 2012 at 10:26 pm Leave a comment

Reading through Wittgenstein’s Mistress isn’t an ordinary reading experience. As such, it’s basically impossible to do a reflection post, as I usually tend to do. However, as I was reading I began almost immediately to notice the sheer number of famous real-life people who are referenced and spoken about repeatedly. Naturally, I wanted to find out about those I’d never heard of and became curious to learn more about the rest.

I present this link gallery as a small sample of the people who populate the mind of the narrator of this book.

Ludwig Wittgenstein

Helen of Troy

Rembrandt

Achilles

Johannes Brahms

Leonardo da Vinci

Martin Heidegger

William Gaddis
