The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing: Traitor to the Nation, Volume I: The Pox Party Part 1, Chapter 21

By M.T. Anderson

Part 1, Chapter 21

  • So they're all in the wilderness now.
  • Cassiopeia goes along because Mr. Gitney tells her to keep Lord Cheldthorpe company, even though the wild is no place for a woman in heels.
  • The group meets up with Druggett, who gets them past the Iroquois—heck, two Iroquois people help them pass safely through the land.
  • One night, one of the Iroquois asks if Bono knew Cato Williams, a black guy who fought against the Iroquois, but Bono just shrugs and says everyone is named Cato Williams.
  • The wilderness is incredibly beautiful and very much "nature" with a big "N" (so we probably should have just written Nature).
  • All that beauty inspires Lord Cheldthorpe to go hunt and de-"virgin"ize the land. Stay classy, LC.
  • Bono and 09-01 agree that they've never seen anyone human being take so much pleasure in killing animals and such.
