Saw #TheRoad. Kudos on that kid! Intended or no, the book/film provide post-apocalyptic, not quiiite despairing takes on G. Eliot’s Silas Marner! …

… The child Eppie saves Eliot’s Silas, but salvation isn’t really part of Cormac McCarthy’s vocabulary! And yet this same adult/child dynamic …

… in the midst of all of this apocalyptic pessimism, is all the more affecting, & finally very moving. “You have all my heart…”
