Saul Bellow at 100

In a draft of Saul Bellow's Herzog (1964), Moses Herzog, a failed academic in the throws of a personal crisis following the breakdown of his second marriage, says that according to "the latest from Paris and London, there is no person…'I' is a grammatical expression." For Herzog, however, the "human soul" is a mystery, an "amphibian," which is cause for intellectual humility. "It lives in more elements," he tells himself, "than I will ever know."
