Birthday Haiku

René Girard found
the mimetic nature of
desire reading

great novels closely,
and then discovered the ties
between violence

and the sacred in
ancient mythology. By

the errors as well
as the insights of Lévi-
Strauss, Freud, and Nietzsche,

Scripture as the key,
and that true knowledge always
begins with the Cross,

he has shown how Christ
revealed to us our great
need of forgiveness.
