M. Butterfly- David Henry Hwang- Spoilers & Discussion

image

Death with honor is better than life… life with dishonor.

So you’re done with M. Butterfly and you’re still not over it. Love it or hate it, are you craving further discussion and analysis?

These are all my opinions, so you may or may not agree with me.

Don’t read this if you haven’t finished it yet! I won’t hold back spoilers here!

Reblog if you use a book’s book jacket as a bookmark.

parchmentjunkie:

I wanna see who else does this.

I read with the book jacket off, but then when I stop, I’ll put it back on and use the jacket as a bookmark!

M. Butterfly- David Henry Hwang- No Spoilers

image

"And you wonder, what’s wrong with me?  Will anyone beautiful want me?" 

Based on a true story that stunned the world, M. Butterfly opens in the cramped prison cell where diplomat Rene Gallimard is being held captive by the French government - and by his own illusions.  In a series of flashbacks, the diplomat relives the twenty-year affair with Song Liling, the Chinese diva, from the temptation to the seduction, from its consummation to the scandal that ultimately consumed them both. But in the end, there remains only one truth: Whether or not Gallimard’s passion was a flight of fancy, it sparked the most vigorous emotions of his life.

(Summary: Goodreads-slightly edited by me; Photo credit: Goodreads)

Book Cake Tag!

This is super cool and I LOVE the idea, thank you what is perfection Jasmine from thefictionologist for tagging me! 

The first ingredient in making a cake is FLOUR:

This is the book that was slow to start, but really began to pick up as you went along.

Next, we add MARGARINE:

This is the book that had a really rich plot.

Then, we crack open some EGGS:

This is the book you thought was going to be bad, but turned out to be quite enjoyable.

The next step is to add SUGAR:

What is the sweetest book you’ve read?

After we’ve retrieved the cake from the oven, ICING covers the surface:

This is the book that covered every single moment you enjoy in a book i.e happy, funny, sad moments. An all-around book

For decoration, we add a dash of SPRINKLES:

A book series for a pick-me-up

Last but not least, we’ve got the CHERRY ON TOP:

What has been your favorite book so far this year?

I tag:

ohidigress

perhapsican

iamsbookworm

bookstolove

pagesandchapters

I think I saw the movie, but it was a while ago. The fact that some people would say that the kids in the movie would grow up to be Mellow and Near confused me so much. Then I realized that Mellow and Near were not part of the first two movies.

Yeah, I kind of liked that the movies didn’t follow the manga and anime plot exactly because I’d be watching the plot for a third time, but at the same time it felt weird.
