I checked Percy's collection at UNC-Chapel Hill, but it doesn't have the Bulkagov book in it.  On the other hand, it doesn't have The Brothers Karamozov either, and we know how central that novel was for him.  So, no illumination from this end either, Jim.

Yes, David. That also makes sense because we know that Percy read that book and loved it.Janet

I can't answer your question, but Art also reminds me of the "devil" 
Ivan converses with in the Brothers Karamazov.

I, too, am enjoying the discussion.
