Disappointing and contrived

by OneWordsmith on May 12, 2011

That a Pulizer author would mix what is at times a perfect depcition of cultural influences and ananysis with personal psychological struggles is disappointing. Had she stuck to highlighting the cultural impact rather than resort much of the time to her own projections onto a man she never knew and didn't research well, this might have been a worthy read. She cites his turning white as deliberate when the man had VItiligo (as listed on his autopsy) and said as much his whole life. This inaccuracy and lack of research brings the rest of her disecting essay into question and that is unfortunate. This appears yet another attempt to capitalize with the ka-ching of coin as motivation. What a pity. And speaking of pity-- is seems her motivation is to have us pity instead of admire the genius of this one-of-a-kind and ahead of his time artist. It's because she has to pity him to accept him. It's her need, not ours. Too bad for the literary world.
