- So, chapter 4 motif?
- Back to Calvino's imagination: hasn't he proved himself? Isn't it good enough? Is it overkill to keep going with more and more "invisible" cities? Can you identify--or at least feel--a progression?
- What of the absurd impracticalities (and thus indulging the impossibilities) of such a place? Maybe the fact that no one spends more than a year or two at any one job has something to do with the overall level financial playing field. Of course, that begs the question: if they're happy anyway, do they need the money or influence or power that comes by and/or causes class stratification?
- Define the irony of the last two sentences: "Alone, among all the cities of the empire, Eutropia, remains always the same. Mercury, god of the fickle, to whom the city is sacred, worked this ambiguous miracle."
