    He probably did it as payback for Orwell’s tepid review of That Hideous Strength.

    Interesting, although I haven’t read 1984 in so long that I don’t recall the sex scenes in the slightest. I concur, btw, with his comments regarding Becky Sharp: Thackeray definitely jumped the shark with “Becky as Clytemnestra”.

    Interesting. I disagree with Lewis because for me, Winston is a cipher for the reader. We don’t get to know him too well, which allows us to see ourselves in that nightmare world. For me, it made the horror more immediate.

    Different strokes for different folks. After all, Tolkein couldn’t stand Narnia.
