From the great Self-Styled Siren, who I have not yet had the wisdom to quote previously in this blog’s twelve or so years, meaning that I have been greatly remiss. If you like movies, you should read the somewhat mysterious but all-knowing Siren, and maybe learn something, especially about thirties movies.
Here’s a post from Self-Styled Siren, imported wholesale without shame, and credited fully from February 25, 2016.
Perhaps I should add that the Siren all but never writes about politics, giving this post of hers extra energy:
What I Think About When They Say Donald Trump Cannot Possibly Become President
… From The Past Is Myself, the memoir of an Englishwoman named Christabel Bielenberg. In the early 1930s she fell in love with a German law student named Peter Bielenberg, married him in 1934, and stayed with him in Germany throughout the war, even as he was arrested and sent to Ravensbruck for involvement in the July 20, 1944 plot to kill Hitler.
The year is 1932, and Christabel is trying to understand German politics.
