The Kardashian sisters are the true heirs to The Brontës
“Sam Riviere argues that Kim Kardashian’s new book of selfies positions her as the heir to the Brontës, Jane Austen and Virginia Woolf. . .
“Though their circumstances are hardly comparable, the Kardashians, like the Brontës, are a family of creative women, in the business of conducting narratives in which men come and go, but female relationships remain constant and meaningful. The Brontë sisters’ creation of imaginary lands, and their group of toy-soldiers, dubbed “the Young Men”, which they guided through complicated narrative scenarios, seems echoed in the world of the Kardashians and their provisional, endlessly adjustable style of storytelling.”
Well, I can hardly comment on this with a straight face. A science of fame? Maybe so, but to what end. How will we see this ripple in the space-time continuum fifty years from now?
What do you think?
