      Oh I’d read your first one! I’d remembered it but had no way of finding it again. Just finished the follow up and I really like your interpretations!

      The reference to The Crying of Lot 49 is also great. I read that in my 12th Grade AP Lit class and loved it. Me and my friends were drawing muted horns on things for months. Excellent comparison as well!

  1. This is great and I really like the layout of it all. It’s a wonderful resource to have all of these different perspectives and analyses gathered in one place for such a complex and layered show. I’m very pleased to see a few of my own write-ups juxtaposed to these other great posts. I applaud you for compiling all of this.
