LXXXIII (b). Lies

by | Apr 10, 2017 | Opus Magnum

Carlo Collodi first considered having his beloved fictional son born within a household during the Victorian era in the suburbs of London.

He then attempted, in vain, to find a suitable name for this little boy: Woodcock was the first that came to his mind; Woodpenis followed it; then Woodshaft; and finally Eusebius.

None worked, for obvious reasons: yet the Eusebius option still puzzles historians and scholars who are dedicated to the Fairy-tale universe.

After much rejection, Collodi finally decided to stick to what he knew, baptising his imaginary son as Pinocchio.
