The Blue Castle illustrations by Masako Kubo

Sourcebooks has a new edition of The Blue Castle by L.M. Montgomery out! It’s a trade paperback, not the little MMP that Bantam released, and the cover looks pretty good. (True, it’s not my favorite depiction of Valancy, but that one’s impossible to find.)

In short, he’s a selfish dick: Mr. Rochester and the romantic hero

“And it doesn’t hurt that Mr. Rochester is, for my money, the sexiest guy in literature.”
—April Lindner, “Author’s Note,” Jane.


Jane meets this guy who loves her for who she is, who doesn’t demand that she change her behavior or her manners. He says that she is his “second self.” And then she finds out that he’s been dishonest with her from the very beginning—she realizes that he has shared almost nothing of himself.

Rochester is that guy you meet in college, who shares all your interests and just gets you. And then you find out that he has a girlfriend back home; instead of owning up to this deception, he talks about how “she doesn’t get him like you do” and “he can’t leave her right now” but he is still “definitely interested in a relationship.”

In short, he’s a selfish dick.

Down where our bodies start to seem like 
artifacts of some strange dream, 
which afterwards you can’t decipher, 
and so, soon, have forgotten 
Everything.

I made the mistake of looking through the Denethor tag. Now I want to write a long-winded viewpoint that presents Denethor in a far more balanced light, to try and dispel some of the hate that the film’s egregious interpretation has left upon people.

The major issue when it comes to people’s…


Tidings of death have many wings. Night oft brings news to near kindred, ’tis said. Boromir was my brother.
