David Foster Wallace Commencement Speech

Wallace was (and still is) considered a deeply influential voice in American literature, but it was very likely that only a handful of people with humanities degrees would have had a clear idea of who they were hearing from. Wallace’s speech has since then been distributed in print and recording under the title This is Water: Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life.
