>Its a Marathe chapter

>> No.11168979

it's been a few years since I read the ole jest. but the irony of the hamlet references in the book and of Blooms own negative views toward Wallace as an author as well as his well known Idolization of Shakespeare and of Hamlet in particular is staggering in retrospect.

I was influenced by Manuel Puig for those chapters, I don't expect my American audience (obnoxious, low IQ, ugly, but good people) to understand

Orin wasn't old enough by then. It's a suggestion that CT isn't outside-the-family-adopted like we're led to believe through Avril.

>it's a Randy Lenz chapter

>> No.11170865

But yeah the first time I read those chapters they fucking sucked! And the second time I dreaded them but came to find them somewhat interesting.

Highlights are cultural attitudes towards the entertainment, with the discussion of free will and choice. The illusion of choice giving way to instant gratification, vs a higher power steering people in a dignified direction.

But yeah. Very dry and boring shit for the most part, and by far the worst characters in the book.
