The Freedom To Be People

by Stacey

“We are all trying to escape our existence, hoping that a better version of us is waiting just behind that promotion, that perfect relationship, that award or accolade, that musical performance, that dress size, that raucous night at a party, that hot night with a new lover. Everyone needs to be pursuing something, right? Otherwise, who are we? How about, quite simply, people? How about human? This is the great message of Shelley’s Frankenstein. Part of Ronan’s myth was this acknowledgment that we need the freedom to be people, that’s all.”

-Emily Rapp, The Still Point of the Turning World
