the secret history
“It is is better to know one book intimately than a hundred superficially.” ― Donna Tartt. Images and sounds that evoke the mood of one of my favorite books.
The Secret History characters as literature genres. ↳ Richard Papen as sentimentalism. He strives for the picturesque, always taking notes and keeping the events of his life documented in ways that make them seem more beautiful than they actual were. He’s in love with the idea of love, with the idea that even the most terrible of things can be glorious in their own way.
