How does it make you feel knowing Lewis Carrol, author of Alice in Wonderland, was a pedophile?
>He took exquisite, melancholy photographs of little girls. He befriended little girls on trains, and beaches, and in the houses of friends. And one particular little girl, Alice Liddell, came to be his muse and great passion.
>He wrote to one 10-year-old girl, "Extra thanks and kisses for the lock of hair. I have kissed it several times - for want of having you to kiss, you know, even hair is better than nothing."
>He wrote to Gertrude Thomson, an artist who was sketching girlish fairies and nymphs, "I confess I do not admire naked boys in pictures. They always seem... to need clothes, whereas one hardly sees why the lovely forms of girls should ever be covered up."

Share your poetry, /lit/.
I dug your deepest crevices,
Yearning to find a light.
But all that wavered
Were flickers - silent and fast
As the night.
I searched your eyes
For a truth of some kind,
Yet all I ever found
Were the hidiest of lies.
And so I quarrel myself,
In this dreadful indecision:
What will be left of me,
When I finally discover
What I've been longing
For so many years to see?
The sun always took
A year or two

Just read the my first dig into Salinger since finishing Catcher many years ago. Well, only read Riase High the Roof Beam, Carpenters so far.
I enjoyed it, I'm too amazing at describing what I like about a book, but I guess it just felt like a story of genuine observations. Can't much remember Catcher now to do a comparison.
Started Seymour, recently the writing seems a whole a lot thicker and more difficult to work through.
Anyways, I dunno, just sharing my thoughts. Guess to add a question for replies, I've heard that there are a few Salinger works that were published, but never collected in the currently printed books. Any idea how I find these stories?
