 SOUTH PACIFIC FICTIONS AND OTHER LIES

I have blogged today about Paul Gauguin, Herman Meville, and Margaret Mead. The impressions of these three have informed opinion about the South Pacific for decades, influencing many generations. But did they get the details right? Did they even get the general bits right?

At International Crime Authors I examine these three questions:

 

Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?

 

Those three questions formed the title of Paul Gauguinís 1897 painting, which he finished while living on a South Pacific Island. It is Gauguinís vision of paradise. That vision of Eden shaped the attitudes and beliefs of many generations. Ever since there have been painters, writers, explorers, adventurers, there have been individuals seeking to discover an earthly paradise. There is a deep longing to believe that given the right circumstances, we are kind, compassionate, forsake violence, jealous, hatred and rivalry.
