Major characters[ edit ] Ignatius J. Reilly[ edit ] Ignatius Jacques Reilly is something of a modern Don Quixote —eccentric, idealistic, and creative, sometimes to the point of delusion.

He disdains modernity, particularly pop culture. He prefers the scholastic philosophy of the Middle Ages , and the Early Medieval philosopher Boethius in particular. The workings of his pyloric valve play an important role in his life, reacting strongly to incidents in a fashion that he likens to Cassandra in terms of prophetic significance.

He continually refers to the goddess Fortuna as having spun him downwards on her wheel of fortune. Ignatius loves to eat, and his masturbatory fantasies lead in strange directions. His mockery of obscene images is portrayed as a defensive posture to hide their titillating effect on him. Although considering himself to have an expansive and learned worldview, Ignatius has an aversion to ever leaving the town of his birth, and frequently bores friends and strangers with the story of his sole, abortive journey out of New Orleans, a trip to Baton Rouge on a Greyhound Scenicruiser bus, which Ignatius recounts as a traumatic ordeal of extreme horror.

The novel repeatedly refers to Myrna and Ignatius having engaged in tag-team attacks on the teachings of their college professors. For most of the novel, she is seen only in the regular correspondence which the two sustain since her return to New York, a correspondence heavily weighted with sexual analysis on the part of Myrna and contempt for her apparent sacrilegious activity by Ignatius.

Officially, they both deplore everything the other stands for. Though neither of them will admit it, their correspondence indicates that, separated though they are by half a continent, many of their actions are meant to impress one another.

Irene Reilly[ edit ] Mrs. Irene Reilly is the mother of Ignatius. She has been widowed for 21 years. At first, she allows Ignatius his space and drives him where he needs to go, but throughout the course of the novel she learns to stand up for herself. She also has a drinking problem, most frequently indulging in muscatel , although Ignatius exaggerates that she is a raving, abusive drunk.

At the end of the novel, she decides she will marry Claude. But first, she agrees with Santa Battaglia who has not only recently become Mrs.

Others[ edit ] Santa Battaglia, a "grammaw" who is friends with Mrs. Clyde, the frustrated owner of Paradise Vendors, a hot dog vendor business, who inadvisably employs Ignatius as a vendor Gus Levy, the reluctant, mostly absentee owner of Levy Pants, an inherited family business in the Bywater neighborhood where Ignatius briefly works Mrs. In another passage, Irene Reilly recalls the night Ignatius was conceived: after she and her husband viewed Red Dust , released in October Reilly can be found under the clock on the down-river side of the block of Canal Street, New Orleans , the former site of the D.

The statue mimics the opening scene: Ignatius waits for his mother under the D. Various local businesses are mentioned in addition to D. Nut , to be fictitious, but it was an actual local soft drink brand of the era.

The "Paradise Hot Dogs" vending carts are an easily recognized satire of those actually branded "Lucky Dogs". Key parts of some chapters are outside of the main narrative. In Consolation, sections of narrative prose alternate with metrical verse. In Confederacy, such narrative interludes vary more widely in form and include light verse , journal entries by Ignatius, and also letters between himself and Myrna.

A copy of the Consolation of Philosophy within the narrative itself also becomes an explicit plot device in several ways. She was persistent and tried several different publishers, to no avail. Thelma repeatedly called Walker Percy , an author and college instructor at Loyola University New Orleans , to demand for him to read it. There was no getting out of it; only one hope remained—that I could read a few pages and that they would be bad enough for me, in good conscience, to read no farther.

Usually I can do just that. Indeed the first paragraph often suffices. My only fear was that this one might not be bad enough, or might be just good enough, so that I would have to keep reading. In this case I read on. And on. First with the sinking feeling that it was not bad enough to quit, then with a prickle of interest, then a growing excitement, and finally an incredulity: surely it was not possible that it was so good.

Later, John Candy and Chris Farley were touted for the lead, but both of them, like Belushi, also died at an early age, leading many to ascribe a curse to the role of Ignatius. Levy, and Dan Hedaya as Mr. They include disorganization and lack of interest at Paramount Pictures , the head of the Louisiana State Film Commission being murdered, and the devastating effects of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans.

I had no idea that little valve could be so pesky. I can only hope it stays open long enough for me to write this review. When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him.

Sin alterar los datos reales penosamente obtenidos, los ha refundido en una suerte de vasto y hermoso poema en prosa. Sentada en su trono, la condesa mira torturar y oye gritar. Sus viejas y horribles sirvientas son figuras silenciosas que traen, fuego, cuchillos, agujas, atizadores; que torturan muchachas, que luego las entierran. La condesa, sentada en su trono, contempla. Es de noche.
