A CV of Obsession

A CV is usually a record of employment. However what if you created a resume of obsession? That’s what Sade’s 120 Days of Sodom is, along with Frank Harris' My Life and Loves. Look at Job whose employment (how odd that his name so neatly describes his destiny) was dealing with adversity. "To thine own self be true" says Polonius to Laertes. Beneath the scrim of propriety, the face that everyone shows the world, lurks a raging unconscious, a world of dream and desire that's the engine driving the train. Freud actually used the passenger’s eye view as a metaphor for free association. So imagine a vade mecum of places you have really been in your heart and mind.
