The Business Man
The Business Man5 1 5 Forfatter: Edgar Allan Poe
The narrator of the story is Peter Proffit, a "methodical" businessman by his own admission. He says a nurse swung him around when he was a young boy, and he bumped his head against a bedpost. That single event determined his fate: the resulting bump was in the area dedicated to system and regularity, according to phrenology.
Proffit goes on to say that he despises geniuses and that they are all asses—"the greater the genius the greater the ass." Geniuses can not, he says, be turned into men of business.
