The Refusal to Make Things Easy for Anyone | Online Only | n+1
For an age where more people are porn-literate than literature-literate, the nerdy Roth may prove to be his most transgressive persona in posterity, although there’s another candidate for the role. As all the tributes pour in and multiply in thousands of bytes on our screens, there’s another thing that no one has really mentioned: his political astuteness. His satirical Nixon speech, where the president refuses to step down if impeached, published in the New York Review of Books in June of 1973, makes for chilling reading for anyone still anticipating Trump’s eventual removal from office. The hatred of small-mindedness, of base opportunism, of attempts to restrict, segregate, or control is there throughout the work, but anyone who doubts his political imagination should read I Married a Communist for its sympathetic evocation of working-class Newark and Gary, Indiana, of labor organizers and Communist-inspired actors, and for its sharp portrayal of the gossip and innuendo traders who abetted McCarthyism and the smear campaigns of Trump’s professor of the dark arts, Roy Cohn. Or there are the chilling portraits of the West Bank Settler, Mordecai Lippmann, in The Counterlife and the Mossad agent Smilesburger in Operation Shylock, which trace a different perversion of the Jews with as much depth, insight, and hard judgment as any vigorous opponent of the Occupation might wish to have composed.
And then there’s the question of health care and bodily frailty, which is pretty much a constant theme in the novels. Although not a political issue when Roth first started subjecting his alter-egos to prostate tumors, neck and back pain, or heart problems, reading these novels now is to get a snapshot of a world in which the clinic is an institution that works to uphold people’s dignity when they’re at their most undignified, an element of civic grandeur even attaches to it. As much as he hated and feared illness and death, Roth at least understood and, to a certain extent, believed in medicine as a sustaining institution and possibly the only professional locus of human compassion.
Or there’s The Plot Against America which, although superficially a counterfactual historical novel about what might have happened had a Lindbergh style anti-Semite and outright Nazi sympathizer won the presidency in 1938, captures the transformation of the United States from a Republic of Hope to the post–September 11 Republic of Fear that we still inhabit.

we're the heirs to the glimmering world - orphan_account - Inception (2010)
"You're an investment banker," Eames tells him. "You're very good. You keep me in the style I'm accustomed to, and we are charmingly co-habitating."
Arthur pauses and tries to take that in.
"Is there a reason why I'm your imaginary boyfriend?" Arthur asks.

The Graphics of Solidarity | VQR Online
Of all these images, one in particular seemed most to sear itself into the Polish national subconscious. When you mention Poznan to Poles today, they will tell you about the crowd of workers led by the young woman in a white dress who was carrying a Polish flag back into the town square. The white of the flag was stained red: it had just been dipped in the blood of a fallen worker.

What is interesting about this memory is that everyone tells you that it is the woman who was bearing the flagpole, whereas in fact when you look at the photograph—which now, in the wake of Solidarity, existed in omnipresent, openly displayed profusion throughout Poland—it was clear that the woman had been carrying nothing at all, and that a worker behind her was the one holding the flag. This once again suggests the way in which people are prepared for images—in which images are prepared for people—by the context of prior images. For there is indeed an image—by this time almost an archetype—of a woman leading a crowd over a barricade while holding a flag aloft. She is Liberty Leading the People, as depicted by Eugène Delacroix in 1830. (The composition of the two pictures—the lower-left-to-upper-right diagonal of the advancing crowd which in turn is advancing from left to right—is remarkably similar.) I am convinced that this particular photograph, rather than any of the innumerable others taken that day, was the image that Poles came to remember because, in a strange sort of way, they already knew it by heart.
