Simone, Our Touchstone

We go to the theatre to enter someone’s experience for a limited amount of time.  Weil raises the question of to what extent we put our money where her mouth is – she might have been privileged, but she also kept records about it, she shared those experiences …

But she also had a financial escape hatch!

But she wasn’t dabbling!

Immersion writing – immersion reporting isn’t the same as real danger!  The self-punishment is also part of it –

Why should I care about these writers who have those safety nets?
