Marilyn Monroe – the icon of innocence

August 17, 2010

MM is an icon. But for what. She married and divorced both a great baseball player and a great playwright. She was the lover of a President and his brother. She was passed around at parties like chip dip. She had no remarkable talent. She never said anything that was interesting or thought provoking. Her film image was of innocence and voluptuosness. A kind of Greek creature, half lamb, half serpent. Or was she just an empty vessel that people projected their own notions. A kind of blanc canvas. To me, she is the opposite of Hitler (the icon of evil). She is the icon of post war (WW2) innocence… You see, I’ve done it as well.

  1. It is certainly interesting for me to read that blog. Thanks for it. I like such topics and everything connected to this matter. I would like to read more soon. By the way, rather nice design you have at that site, but don’t you think design should be changed every few months?
