Reproof Reading - The Hyperliterature Exchange, May 2008


New on The Hyperliterature Exchange for May 2008: a review of 'Le Reprobateur/The Reprover' by Francois Coulon.

"The central conceit of Le Reprobateur is the profession of Reprobateurs or Reprovers, whose practitioners hire themselves out to act as external consciences for their weaker-willed clients.
