RE: The Dying Body Chronicles 12: The Great Crime

You are viewing a single comment's thread:

A doctoral essay written in 2010 asserts that a modern preoccupation with violence is prompted by ennui. Greek gods toyed with humans and wreaked havoc whimsically. Your character is the voice of that boredom, which is morally neutral. Of course, war is senseless, and often an exercise of vanity. So this story, the Greeks and the doctoral student attempt to make sense out of what appears to be an irrational universe.

Your personification of this chaotic impetus is persuasive. Your use of language is brilliant.
