jdebbiel:

it’s really weird thinking about the accomplishments of fictional characters in terms of what grade they would be in if they attended American public schools. Like think about it. 

Harry Potter was a sixth grader when he slayed a basilisk.

Mulan was a high school sophomore when she saved China.

when i was a high school sophomore i fainted from eating a poppyseed bagel.

Those New York cops from the ’70s you wrote about were my idols. I mean, Gaminsky, Cavanaugh, Quigg.”

"To have great pain is to have certainty; to hear that another person has pain is to have doubt. (The doubt of other persons, here as elsewhere, amplifies the suffering of those already in pain.) … The rarity with which physical pain is represented in literature is most striking when seen within the framing fact of how consistently art confers visibility on other forms of distress (the thoughts of Hamlet, the tragedy of Lear, the heartache of Woolf’s “merest schoolgirl”). Psychological suffering, though often difficult for any one person to express DOES have referential content, IS susceptible to verbal objectification, and is so habitually depicted in art that, as Thomas Mann’s Settembrini reminds us, there is virtually no piece of literature that is NOT about suffering."

- The Body in Pain by Elaine Scarry. (Been thinking a lot lately about the experiences—physical pain being one, but I think there are others—that are rendered invisible by the inability of language to describe them referentially, or else the dominant culture’s inability to hear the voices that are describing them.)
