I don’t remember what movie that’s from. but I kept saying it to myself while I read Geraldine Brooks‘ hotly anticipated latest novel, Caleb’s Crossing.
What?! Sayeth thou. But that book isn’t out yet!
A ha. I got an advance copy from BlogHer, specifically so that I could review it.
And review it I did.
I made all kinds of pithy and wise observations, such as the fact that the main character is “like the Massachusetts Colony’s own Jo March or Elizabeth Bennet,” in that she represents the smart, willfull, outspoken young woman archetype. Also, I noted that “The interweaving of themes, feminism, racism, elitism, theism, naturalism, all kinds of other isms is coherent and seamless.”
I was hugely distracted by the language, however, hence my “dost thou have a washroom” fixation. This may or may not be my problem; but it was enough of a problem that I’m still talking about it.
I said more than that which I have quoted, excuse me, quoteth, above, and you should go read it. HERE. Now.
I thanketh thou.
