In The Moment
Not been doing any reading or research. A couple of remarks over the last couple of days in relation to the terror attacks in Paris seem to have wakened my interest. After listening to John Kerry describe Isis as ‘medieval’ I read this remark by U.S. Army Colonel Steve Warren. ” I mean this guy was a human animal, and I mean killing him is probably making the world a better place.”
Stimulated my interest to return to medieval narrative which explores the idea of human and animal in a space where culturally maintained boundaries between things are ambiguous.
A space shaped by psychological response to violence and a deep sense of cultural loss.
