    Summary

    "Tell me about a complicated man." - The Odyssey (as translated by Emily Wilson)

    Translation of the bad French of the title: "After Death, Work." A sideways riff on a phrase attributed to King Louis XV of France and/or his lover Madame de Pompadour: "Après moi, le déluge" (After Me, the Flood). This implies (approximately) that chaos would naturally follow the death of the monarch.

    Thank you, yes, I know that I am weird. ;)
