Proust, Before and After Show more
I read v1 of ISOLT. Then I read an edited collection of Girard’s work and Things Hidden. Now, I’ve begun v2 of ISOLT.
Before Girard, ISOLT was novel and intriguing and oddly aesthetically pleasing. After Girard, all I see is the absurd fluctuations in desire that make up the bulk of the narrative. And it’s the first time I’ve really noticed how affected I am by framing and context.
