Bend Sinister

Filed under: General — m759 @ 6:30 AM

This morning's New York Times  obituaries—

These suggest a look at Solving Nabokov's Lolita Riddle ,
by Joanne Morgan (Sydney: Cosynch Press, 2005).

That book discusses Lolita as a character like Lewis Carroll's Alice.

(The Red Queen and Alice of course correspond to figures in
the first two thumbnails above.)

From the obituary associated with the third thumbnail above:

"Front-page headlines combined concision and dark humor." 

The title of this post, Bend Sinister , is not unlike such a headline.
It is the title of a novel by Nabokov (often compared with Orwell's 1984 )
that is discussed in the Lolita Riddle  book.

This resembles the following symbol,
due to logician Charles Sanders Peirce,
of the logic of binary opposition:

On this, International Women’s Day,
we might also consider the
widely quoted thoughts on logic of
Harvard professor Barbara Johnson:

Nothing Fails Like Success, by Barbara Johnson

Detail:

Barbara Johnson, Nothing Fails Like Success, detail

“Instead of a simple ‘either/or’ structure,
deconstruction attempts to elaborate a discourse
that says neither “either/or”, nor “both/and”
nor even “neither/nor”, while at the same time
not totally abandoning these logics either.”

It may also be of interest on
International Women’s Day
that in the box style” I Ching

Jungian analyst
Marie-Louise von Franz)
