a trágica beleza da ignorância

“Flores para Algernon é ao lado de Frankenstein de Mary Shelley um dos livros mais comoventes e interessantes que já li, abordando vários temas como abandono, doenças mentais, psicanálise, religião, conhecimento, ignorância, amnésia e uma ampla gama de temas que são desenvolvidos nas mais de 200 páginas do romance. Contextualizando primeiro, o autor é um dos pais dos cartoons na América, sendo grande amigo do Stan Lee e consequentemente um dos fundadores da Marvel. O livro em si foi publicado na década de 50 para 60 e se trata de uma espécie de diário que é escrita por um deficiente mental chamado Charlie Gordon que foi abandonado pelos pais e cooptado por um grupo de cientistas como cobaia de um experimento onde ele poderia deixar sua condição cognitiva e aumentar seu qi ” read more

Book Diary 2021 (59 books items)

" Subject: The story of a mentally disabled man whose experimental quest for intelligence mirrors that of Algernon, an extraordinary lab mouse. Its easy to make frends if you let pepul laff at you. It was the way it had been back there in that strange vision. The gray murk lifted from my mind, and through it the light pierced into my brain (how strange that light should blind!), and my body was absorbed back into a great sea of space, washed under in a strange baptism. Why am I always looking "

"In a way, including this book is kinda cheating since I was assigned to read it in a textbook and read the full version in August 2016, but through all the Fridge Logic, it counts because of the impact it had on me. Even though much of it was edited to fit that boarding school's standards, I still friggin' loved it. I followed suit to buy the book after remembering it randomly and to this day, it still remains my favorite book of all time (Tied with Going Clear)."
