1984 — The Lustful Empress

TJ has inspired me to revisit 1984 and, honestly, I think I like it much better this time around than the last time I read it. I think the last time I read it was probably around 1984, so that might have something to do with it, which seems unlike me, as I went through a bout of reading a bunch of books that people hated reading because they were required reading in school, or because they were considered classics in my late teens and early 20s. I know I read Animal Farm several times since those years. You know – Red Badge of Courage, almost everything Hemingway, Tropic of Cancer, Lord of the Flies, Beowulf, Le Morte de Arthur, Kafka, Sartre, Camus, Salinger… not everything, but I sure made a dent in “must read” oldies.

Maybe that’s what I need to do, read old literature. I’ve been eyeing Hemingway again… Thanks, TJ.

  1. Lord of the Flies is a goody. So… there is this new school that was built the next neighborhood over from mine. I kid you not… there is this art piece thing (not sure what to call it) in the schoolyard that literally looks like a giant pig head on a spike. But a very stylized one. It is a French school so maybe the people who designed it don’t know the symbolism… or they bloody well do and have a very sick sense of humour. I laugh every time we drive past it because it is just ridiculous… and absolutely hilarious.

  2. Honestly… I don’t think the person who designed the space knew because really!?! A fucking pig head on a pole? At an elementary school? You have to be either completely ignorant… or an evil genius. Kinda hoping for the latter tbh….
