Viglets: Ode to Dumbness

While Viglets One provided insight and blessed relief from irksome events that befall us all – at one time or another, Viglets Two – Ode to Dumbness is exactly what it sounds like: a dedication to Dumbness in general and Dummies in particular. A clever spin on the ordinary dictionary definition, this read smashes the stigma attached with success and failure through intricate verses of poetry and narration.

In what is referred to as the ‘Dummy BERP’ (those in business, education, religion and politics) the book explores the happiness and joy of being dumb, in some ways dubbing it a human right. A particular highlight was ‘Professional Dummies’ and the clever analysis on themes of education, industry, taxation and physical appearance. Hansen throws in a witty perspective on gun laws and continues his distaste for technology.

Divided into twelve parts, Hansen continues his signature writing style which favors free verse poetry and stanzas with various poetry lengths. Once again, we see creative exercises appear throughout the book and an almost satirically humorous tone color the pages. There is a fantastic consistency and flow in this installment. A clearer and well incorporated theme with a relatable and realistic outlook covering everything from the likes of work and politics to heritage and knowledge that allows the reader to engage with Hansen’s hypothesis.

For readers who want a break from real world chaos to energize their own happiness by poking fun at themselves. With a step-by-step guide on how to create Viglets, Hansen helps to bring the reader back into perspective and rejoice in the good company of billions of others who are experiencing the same wonderful thing – being dumb.
