Yeah, really enjoyed it despite his usual rapes and molestations of young women by old men/monsters
Yeah there's a couple bits which are just ridiculous and you think, why are you doing this? He's proper weird and dark is Alan Moore, no mistake. I think he must do it because he deliberately wants to go beyond the pale. I do think both bits add to the story tho. Years ago I would've liked those bits but now they make me wince more than anythingYeah, really enjoyed it despite his usual rapes and molestations of young women by old men/monsters
In 1955, William Gaddis published The Recognitions, which is, among other things, the greatest novel ever written on the art and act of painting. Structured as a triptych, it investigates the spectrum between the original and the mimetic, the djinn of imitation, the real and the fake, and the real in the fake, ad nauseaum. It is, as you may well imagine, another of our vertiginous epochal artifacts: the one to lend its name, and spirit, to our catoptric inquiry on artworks that have passed the Turing test of time across the ages.
I was going to say Robert Graves's book (which Craner has read and recommended) but a cursory glance at Wiki suggests that its a highly idiosyncratic and controversial version of the myths.i want to learn more about greek mythology, i know almost nothing about it. do you guys know if there is some standard work about it?
I may have done... but I've never read it, or the myths one, though I have that on my shelf. Not really what you're after now but if you've never read his I Claudius and Claudius the God you should put that right immediately, one of my favourite novels. EDIT although it does give you a lot of historical stuff about Rome.yeah ive not read the white goddess, ive heard that is good - i think both of you and craner recommended it.
