This book fascinates me on the one hand (presumably because everyone knows a Holden Caulfield) on the other hand, however, I find Salinger’s narrative unmoving and also the story is not really original. Despite everything, I would recommend it, simply because it seems to me as if every teenager on their way to adulthood makes similar decisions as Holden. 4 STARS!!
Hi guys, sorry I’ve been neglecting my inbox (…and this blog generally) lately. Emma Hart as Circe is just the head shot. Most paintings of her are done by George Romney, to whom she was introduced by the man who suggested she change her name to Emma Hart (she was born Amy Lyon, but changed it to Emma Lyon herself). They are mostly classical scenes, in a style she came up with living in Naples:
Emma developed what she called her “Attitudes” or Mimoplastic art, using Romney’s idea of combining classical poses with modern allure as the basis for her act. Emma had her dressmaker make dresses modelled on those worn by peasant islanders in the Bay of Naples, and the loose-fitting garments she often wore when modelling for Romney. She would pair these tunics with a few large shawls or veils, draping herself in folds of cloth and posing in such a way as to evoke popular images from Greco-Roman mythology
And without further ado, Emma Hart.

Love-à-la-Mode, or Two Dear Friends
An early 19th-century caricature by James Gillray, reportedly depicting a scandalous rumour told about Emma, Lady Hamilton (Nelson’s mistress), and Queen Maria Carolina of Naples (presumably the woman on the left, who seems to be wearing some kind of coronet or crown beneath the feathers in her headdress). Emma has taken off her bonnet and put it on the bench. Two men spy out the situation in some distaste, from behind the bushes.
One lady to the other: “Little does he imagine that he has a female rival” Gentleman in nautical uniform (Nelson?) “What is to be done to put a stop to this disgraceful Business?”
