What did you think? What sentences jumped out at you? What questions stuck with you? (Starts on p. 73 of the new collection of David Foster Wallace's essays, Both Flesh and Not.)
Made me think mostly about the use of language as a way to talk around things, as DFW proposes many people does, but Kate does not in WM.
The debate of femininity is also interesting. DFW mentions that a woman can be objectified and, in Helens case, start a war by just being beautiful and desireable. Conflicts, both big and small, arises with the imposed cause of one person. This is I think a way to easy explanation, leaving out all the complexity that surrounds us.
