You have to do what you have to do. And we do not blame you for taking the opportunity to get away. But with the southern-central ruling and our current right wing government, we can’t forgive you for not fucking taking us with you.
Lots of angry love,
Everyone north of Manchester.
I’m a huge supporter of things which annoy misogynistic rich white men
have you ever had to restart a song because you spaced out and weren’t appreciating it enough
for the last fucking time representation does not mean shoving in a queer romance. it means acknowledging we fucking exist. it means a girl saying she likes girls. it means a character doing something as simple as checking out their same gender. you don’t have to be in a relationship to be recognized as queer. representation is not and never has been about ‘ships.’ it’s about normality. it’s about existing for a purpose other than a punchline or a god damned ship
FUN STORY my old English lit tutor used Lolita as an example of an unreliable narrator. The whole novel is basically about the main character justifying his pursuit of Lolita by interpreting her innocent behaviour as sexual and adult. The fact that she comes across as so "mature" in the novel is because the main character is trying to convince himself that she is mature so he can justify his abusive behaviour. It's essentially a internal commentary of a paedophile grooming a child.
What really pisses me off is that Nabokov regretted writing it in the end because he kept constantly having to explain that this is what the novel was about because readers just did not get this at all.
People who think it is a love story and view Humbert as in any way sympathetic as the poor man who “gave into his dark desires” worry me immensly.
people are terrible and bad at literature
I didn’t know this book could be misunderstood
Tell me about it, we’ve got people reviewing it in barnes and noble as “the greatest forbidden love story”, these folks either have not read the book or need to be investigated.
