Henry Darger, ‘Second battle of McAllister Run they are pursued’ (détail)


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    Thank you for the brief history lesson I took to understand the work of art. The lesson did not help me appreciate the art but was interesting in itself. How long would it take for four thousand troops to overcome two hundred and fifty? That day at Fort McAllister, fifteen minutes. Why did the U. S. Navy name warships after plant life, as in USS Dandelion? Okay, the “lion” portion of “dandelion” helps a little, no, make that, “very little.” The mighty aircraft carrier USS Lilac. No, it doesn’t work. So let me take this Rorschach on my own. Helpless young girls having to hide from the mass of Union soldiers threatening them by hiding behind spirits of trees that blinded the attackers but we’re invisible to others? Given the history of Sherman’s march, fears were justified.
