"Essay #3: Leda And The Swan" by Eric Puchner

Today I had a student come to the writing center for help with an essay about Eric Puchner's short story, "Essay #3: Leda And The Swan." Not only is the story about poetry (and vegans and mental illness and death metal and Hitler), but it also contains the phrase, "cold enough to freeze the testicles off a brass monkey." It is also hilariously awesome. Read it. Or, at least, read the part that's available online.
