Alan Moore Ñ 6 READ REVIEW É PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ñ Alan Moore READ V for Vendetta Efining work for creators Alan Moore and David LloydSet in an imagined future England that has given itself over to fascism this groundbreaking story captures both the suffocating nature of life in an authoritarian police state and the re. Prison What exactly is prison Is it just the confinement in which we are placed after crime Or is it something Can we become imprisoned without being aware of it Can we even imprison ourselves Perhaps even to the state Alan Moore depicts these uestions in this scary graphic novel that is set in some crazy right winged London that reeks of fascism and corruption It s a dark eerily real place it is a place that might have actually been in an alternate history Just like in Watchmen Moore shows us an alternative past that is stark and weirdly possible The people struggle under an oppressive regime they have no voice they have no liberty or identity they are in a monumental prison of both body and mind And worse yet because of the mass propaganda campaigns intimidating armed troop patrols and lack of freedom in general the people are not fully aware of their own oppressive plight They re ignorant and led along by the voice of power and authority They have no free will This is where V comes in In the guise of a shadowy villain the costumed rogue represents pure anarchy His way of thought as he himself admits would lead to nothing but chaos But anything is better than fascism right Well you d think so but V is far from the morale crusader he identifies himself as Despite his form of vigilante justice he is not morally good What he inflicts on his prot g is nothing but damn nasty yes it opened her eyes to the prison of life but in order for them to be opened he had to inflict great cruelty Do the ends ever justify the means Anarchy is the complete lack of authority over the populace which is what V is striving for but he is acting with the power and ruthless of the very thing he is trying to overcome Indeed what he exacts is a form of manipulative control which is the very thing he is trying to destroy through his wave of terrorism He is certainly a dark and complex character Perhaps his ethos is even slightly self defeating and contradictory I don t think he s any better that what he is trying to destroy but perhaps that s the idea Perhaps Moore is trying to suggest that corruption is the very essence of human nature and that nobody is beyond it I think V is less a man than an ideal He represents something much bigger than himself which is signified by his legacy But what this thing is destructive and extreme his idea is not necessarily something beneficial to mankind I much preferred Watchmen to this it was less political and focused on human nature rather than the complex nature of politics I think the right reader could take a lot from this but for me I thought it was too bleak There s little in the way of redemptive themes here 25 stars

Alan Moore Ñ 6 READ REVIEW É PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ñ Alan Moore READ V for Vendetta Demptive power of the human spirit which rebels against it Crafted with sterling clarity and intelligence V for Vendetta brings an uneualed depth of characterization and verisimilitude to its unflinching account of oppression and resistan. I struggled for a long time with the growing notion that conservatives simply aren t funny At first it seemed a silly idea since conservatism draws from sources as varied as progressivism all levels of intelligence and wealth all kinds of people from all walks of life yet none of them are funnyCertainly they can tell jokes and be charming but not satirical not biting Subversion doesn t come naturally to them and it should have been clear why Conservatism relies on ideals on grand heroic notions which are to be believed in Progressives or Liberals rely on deconstruction of these notions which is in itself a subversionThat might not entirely explain the sad discrepancy between Doonesbury and Mallard Fill but it s a start I feel like this difference in mode is also to blame for some of the common critiues of Alan Moore s workHe s recently achieved notoriety as a Hollywood Gold Standard and as the scowling bearded mascot of rebranding Comics as Graphic Novels despite the fact that Moore Gaiman and I all prefer the original term As a product of this new visibility he has been discovered by new readers some of whom dismiss him as a subversive anarchistI agree that he is subversive and that he is interested in exploring violent anarchism in his works but he has too much subtlety to be saddled with the views of some of his characters Critics can uickly identify attacks on their ideologies but seem less skilled at seeing how an apparent progressive like Moore simultaneously attacks his own representation of the agents of changeRorschach in Watchmen is a parody of the superhero staple of morality by violence or is it the other way round a parody the film version completely fails to recognize Likewise V is meant to be flawed fraught and difficult and Moore invites us to uestion his philosophies and methodsMoore always gives his characters motives because his characters operate by their psychology their history their disposition their experiences But in V Moore is giving us a background to establish a motive which is why we might end up on V s side beyond the David and Goliath tropeMoore gives us this motive so that he can communicate his ideas clearly We see that V s actions are accountable personally which leads us to ask whether they are accountable socially morally or ethically It is after all a story concerned with the nature of politics power subjugation and resistance Like a philosopher hashing out his ideas Moore explores his theme by setting limits to focus the hypothesisWhether V can be excused or praised outside his personal motivations is another argument but the fact that Moore has isolated and located this argument at a point in narrative space shows his thoughtful deliberate mastery of the formLike Watchmen the film version mostly strips out this layer of complexity and is content like the majority of action films or violent dystopias to let this personal struggle be the end of the moral uestion thus reducing V to a violent hero or antihero This idealized personal morality is common not only in action movies but in cape comics and conservatism yet focusing on a wholly personal response precludes observing how politics works or any grand social scale which is necessarily defined by the impersonal The personal is simply not important not viable and in the end gets lost in the mix The billions of personal elements counteract one another into a kind of Brownian Motion stirring without direction while the real forces of power move above them and alongside them shaping the worldThink of all the people acting out their personal moralities proud as peacocks You hear people talk about turning off the water when they brush their teeth despite the fact that than ninety percent of water use is industrial People buy free range organic despite the fact that the money still goes to the same five companies and the term organic is entirely unregulated People get self satisfied about their Prius when five shipping tankers produce as many tons of emissions as all the cars in the worldIt is not that these personal beliefs cannot change things in fact they often come to the forefront but this change is momentary and complex and hence no great theory could be made to predict it so it cannot be harnessed only taken for granted by the forces of power The people act personally the they will be taken advantage of impersonallyIt isn t surprising that critiues of Moore tend to focus on these personal symbolic journeys but that s simply not how Moore operates Sympathy for his characters should be mistrusted just as we must mistrust Milton s Satan even with all his charm it is the utmost foolishness not to recognize him for who he isYou don t have to look hard to see these little subversions these clues that something isn t right but you do have to look There is a fast paced exciting complex plot atop it all and it s easy to get caught up in Alan Moore s stories Unlike some authors Moore won t spell it out for you but calling him an Anarchist is an oversimplificationIn interviews Moore has said that an Anarchist state is one where the powerful rule the weak by fear and force of arms noting that this describes every government and nation in history no matter what florid terms are used to make such governance appealing Moore may use V to present the ideal of the Anarchist but we must remember he doesn t believe in idealsWhich is why Alan Moore is funny When you are uite sure that he is being serious you can be certain that he is being funny After all the surest sign that we have ceased to think clearly about something is that we can no longer laugh at it So remember if you aren t laughing you aren t thinking and if you aren t thinking then you definitely won t understand
