Yes. Everything is political.

My head is tumbling with thoughts about this subject and I can't even articulate how political/social/cultural context has shaped my reading, really since my high school years when there was no language for a lot of what was thinking. It's been great to "grow up" as a reader and thinker during these tumultuous and promising decades.

Forget your perfect offering.
There is a crack in everything.
That's how the light gets in.

When talking about literature, does anyone else get equally caught up in the social, cultural and political implications of a work?

I used to be quite active in the book blogging world and the two blogs I publish are colored by my politics and feminist views.

What about you?
