Reading The Portrait of a Lady again so soon after The Custom of the Country is wild, lmfao.

James is over here like, “she is beautiful and she sometimes behaved badly, but that was a part of learning.”

And Wharton in Custom is just like, “Haha, what a fucking bitch.”
James: ah yes, the noble female nature, sublime in its generalities and beautiful in its particulars

Wharton: LOL, messy ass queens, yesss, lie cheat and steal baybeeee.
It’s strange reading James because his characters know women can be flawed but his narrators do not. Whereas with Wharton, the flaws are a feature and not a bug, lol
I mean obviously the narrators are often being ironic, like, duh, but sometimes they aren’t!!!

I was telling a friend about The Chair yesterday and they asked me if it was good and I sighed in the middle of Target and had to explain that nothing is good. There is no such thing as good television or good movies. Just things with vibes you align with or don’t.
Like, good died in like 2010 or something.
But I did tell them to watch it, lol
