disturbing

I am not sure what Vladimir Nabokov's must have felt if he is still is alive right now, watching the news about the incest case in Vienna, (the one that a father kept his daughter for 24 years and fathered 7 of his own grandkids), as I kept on thinking on Humbert's feeling to Lola.


It's sickening, I know, but (can't say I agree) the emotions are so honest and endearing (almost) that I almost symphatise with Humbert's "illness" of loving nymphets, though I must say, in caution, that I myself failed to fathom to understand his reasonings.
But Lolita is not his own daughter, so its not as bad as what Josef Fritzl did to his own daughter.

But still.. a child is supposed to be protected, loved (not that kind of love), cared for, not ravished nor even been fantasized upon!

While I was in the uni, I watched Korean's Oldboy (similarly on incestuous siblings) (that time I watched a lot of foreign films~thanks to AH) and I don't know why these people have this thing on siblings love. Autumn in my heart, Stairway to heaven, blabla. Tak kisahla kan kalau "bekas" adik kandung, tertukar adikbadik ke (they got a lot of these cases) semua pun sapu. Konon sweetla tuh. Nak muntah hijau, ok!

(side story: I can list more, but you get my drift, and are we to suppose that's just the way it is in their origin country?
Like from where I belong, the drama always involve extra wives, bomoh and big-shot corporates. But then again I am generalising...Don't blame me~ I just put it the way a nation is potrayed)



And my favourite author, Ian Banks (without the "M") whom his works on Espedair Street and the Wasp Factory i admire, and yes I was surprised, if not disappointed, that he wrote something about it too in Walking on Glass (must he?).

Its not a fashion, please don't glamourise an illness!
(like gay love~but then again, I am homophobic)

Damning I tell you.
No more of this.
Whatever Nobokov's Humbert or Banks' Slater or any versions of them might have felt watching the wretched news on tv, I don't think they feel ok.
I hope they feel sick to their stomach and resent to whatever their fantasies are.

These things should not be happening.
They shouldn't be appearing in a any books too, regardless how intense the love is.
Yuck la.

dear anonymous,

even if they're not condoning it,they were making it sound fashionable.
